I started drawing and sketching around the 8th grade. It was pretty random actually, but I realized I was good at something that I never knew I loved. My influences for art are probably my dad, who loved to paint, and my art teacher, Mrs. Pierce. I’ve been in her class for two years and she has really helped my art grow and help me find my voice. In the future, I want to do something in the film industry and incorporate my creative and artistic ideas. However, drawing will always be apart of my life wherever I go and whatever I am doing in the future.
