It’s unsurprising to learn that Samaná-based Hulda Guzmán is most interested in painting tropical landscapes. Born into a family of Dominican artists, she’s long transferred her surroundings into juicy depictions of foliage and flora. “I feel inspired by all the lush and beautiful vegetation of my native island, by the infinite arrays of colour, light, texture and shapes within the natural world,” she explains. “I find a lot of comfort in the meditative process of contemplating nature, and so I am constantly compelled to paint landscapes, trees and animals.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
