International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
Here at 3Doodler, where half of our team is made up of women, we wanted to take a moment to highlight just a few of the incredibly talented women who have achieved great things with our 3Doodler 3D printing pens. From high-end fashion pieces to life-size cow sculptures (and everything in between), we’ve seen remarkable works over the years.
If you follow 3Doodler on social media, you’ve likely come across Rachel Goldsmith before. Rachel has created a name for herself by painting using a 3D pen, PLA filament and a blank canvas. Beyond her canvas creations, she recently mesmerized us with a piece she did for CowParade NYC 2021. We watched in awe as Rachel showed us the art of doodling hair out of PLA filament, not to mention the life-sized fiberglass highland cow she created for the exhibit. She did a wonderful job at documenting her process. We can’t wait to see what Rachel will create next. Follow along on her next project via her Instagram.
Cornelia Kuglmeier has been a cornerstone of our doodling community with her prolific work that turns fantasy into reality. You might even recognize some of her amazing Doodles on our Instagram. Connie is a 3D pen artist and educator, whose techniques are some of the most advanced we’ve come across. In addition to the content she posts on her Instagram, she’s posted some incredibly detailed and helpful tutorials on her YouTube channel that dive into tips and tricks for better doodling.
Stéphanie Santos is a European fashion designer who uses 3Doodler 3D pens to create clothing and jewelry inspired by nature. Using her background in art, fashion, and biofabrication, she has created a visionary collection of clothing and jewelry with our 3Doodler Start+ and Create+ pens. The series was inspired by her passion for sustainability. All of the 3Doodler filaments are either compostable or recyclable, which makes an excellent material for her work.

Alanna Baird describes herself as a Jill of all trades as she has dabbled in many mediums of art. “I make large art structures with my pen, which I love doing, but the most memorable build was doodling my 6-year-old grandson’s drawings for walls, roof parts, windows, and doors to assemble a small structure for our stick-drawn people to play in. Drawing from his imagination knows no bounds!” Currently, the ability to incorporate shadow into her work is very exciting as it adds additional elements for her to play with. Alanna’s work is currently on exhibit at the McCain Art Gallery in Florenceville-Bristol, New Brunswick, Canada.
