St. Petersburg High junior
I’ve always loved art. My mom was studying it when I was young, so I definitely take after her. Drawing and painting were some of my favorite pastimes growing up, but I really fell in love with art over the past couple of years. What was once a hobby is now one of my biggest passions. Coming into high school I loved cartoonish drawings, but since then I think my tastes have expanded a lot. My current favorite artists are Bruce Nauman, Hope Gangloff and Egon Schiele. I love looking at abstract expressionism and modern art, and I love experimenting with textures, lines and contrast. I really love doing portraits, usually of my friends, my sister or myself. Recently I’ve been painting a lot on the covers or pages of old books, which is a lot of fun. I’m definitely considering majoring in art in college; I figure that with only one life to live, why not go after your passions?
