About the Artist
Value of art
While growing up I could see beauty in everything, no matter how bad or how good. Every experience I went through, art had a way of telling my story. Art tells my story by letting me use the color to give the right feeling I want my viewers to have.
Living in a rural area is a big influence in my art work because I have grown up to see the beauty in the simple things like the simplicity of the landscape or the wonderful breeze that makes the trees flow. My dad is one of the biggest influences because he owns a farm and works hard on it and that is how I got my concentration; beauty in rural area.
For the last four semesters, four people and I have been in all the same art classes and I have grown so much in art and as a person. One day we came into class and one of the students had his artwork pulled up and we gathered around him and just started to collaborate with him. That is one of the best experiences because we know each other's strengths, weaknesses, and we know what to tell them when it is needed. We were always motivating each other to stay on task and love what art we made.
