Hi, we're Jack and Melody Tripp. We are the creators, owners, and operators of Children of Mercury. My wife and I have been interested in art for as long as we can remember. I spent a few years going to school for animation and Melody is currently pursuing a fine arts, with a sculpture emphasis, degree at the University of Utah. As we each explore different styles and mediums, we have both realized that three dimensional art is extremely enjoyable.

One of Melody's latest projects was to recreate the Aperture Handheld Portal Device from the video game Portal. Her attention to detail is incredible, down to the working lights and sounds.

Over the years we have become regulars at the Utah Foster Care Chalk Art Festival. As Team Chalk-o-Licious we have won Best of Show, Best Use of Medium, and People's Choice. Even though it's a grueling two days out in the hot Utah sun, it's something neither of us would miss.

No matter where we go, my wife will always find a way to show off her talents. This was one of the many sand sculptures we've created while vacationing down at Lake Powell.

Melody is an amazing henna artist and regularly has a booth at festivals around the state.
