Jalyn Bowie is a 16 year old from Northern Indiana who hopes to attend IU-Bloomington, Ball State University or Purdue University when the time comes. For the time being she loves playing her viola and making fabulous pieces of artwork and unique pieces of jewelry during the school year and hanging out with friends during the summer months.

Jalyn is a contemporary artist who has interests in photography and jewelry making.

Jalyn received the Art Student of the Year award in 2017 for her exuberant art style, dedication to art and her down-to-earth personality. She has played the viola for six years and enjoys singing in her free time.

She was raised as Baptist but now that Jalyn has grown up some and is able to make some of her own decisions, she just knows that she is a Christian while not categorizing herself in a specific biblical subdivision.

When Jalyn isn’t writing her next post or crafting her next jewelry piece, you can find her watching her favorite shows on Netflix or defying all the rules of art.
