Meet one of ArtWorks’ newest interns, Haley Hughes!
Hello everyone, my name is Haley Hughes. I am a mixed media artist heavily focused on sculpture, photography and installation art. I’m currently attending the University of Cincinnati as a 4th year Fine art major and marketing minor. I spend most of my free time hiking outdoors and exploring new and cool places. I really enjoy working on projects as a team and collaborating with other people. I’m really looking forward to meeting the Artworks team and learning about ways I can collaborate with the local community.
