Jamierose DiScipio, 23, of Wethersfield, created the artwork on this week's cover. DiScipio grew up in Bolton and went to school at Manchester Community College in Manchester. She received a bachelor of fine arts degree in May from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. "I make art because I want someone to experience what I love, and for me that's what making art is about," she says. The cover piece, "Natural Formation," is an oil on canvas. The painting is about the naturally occurring patterns in life, such as the arrangement of leaves growing up a stem of a plant shown in this painting. "The universe we live in is immensely vast, but we can still see how beautiful the little things are even when we don't realize something so intricate exists right under our nose," she says.
