A note from the artist...
I have been drawing and painting all my life. I grew up around art - taking classes on weekends and during the summer and just letting myself absorb all the art around me as much as I could. I love to add a sense of pop culture or history and really integrating it into my pieces. I thoroughly believe that all art tells a story, whether it be a piece of pottery or a fashion illustration. Everything has a meaning pertaining to the world around us and tells a unique story. "A picture is worth a thousand words" as I like to think about it. As far as my future in art goes, my dream is to go into fashion design and hopefully attend the Fashion Institute of Technology, but I still have a few more years left in high school before that happens. To all aspiring artists, musicians, scientists, teachers, Olympic hopefuls, or basically anyone who has a dream, I have come to realize that anything is possible as long as you don't give up. As teenagers and children, we have so much potential for our future.
