I am 19 years old from Baltimore, Maryland, and a sophomore Studio Art major at Florida Southern College. As an artist, I have a distinct style but I feel as though it is still developing and changing as I continue to learn and experiment more. I do primarily painting and drawing, but I also have a strong, growing interest in 3D work. I like to experiment with color, perspective, and breaking down complex shapes into simpler organic ones in a way that is both pleasing and confusing to the eye. I feel as though there can be a strong pressure to create art that is conventionally pretty and makes people happy. But if art is an imitation of life, life is not always pretty or happy, but that’s not to say the things that aren’t are any less interesting.
