“Art is a way of escaping the reality of this world and just going into your own place and creating your own unique image. Art to me is a home that I cherish inside a book that I never want to let go of. Art is a fascinating and imaginative process that many will understand and love.”

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m 17 and I’ve been dealing with General Anxiety Disorder for around a year and 7 months already. I gained interest in art in middle school, but always just found it fascinating in elementary school. In school I was mostly known as the quiet girl who can draw amazing and is very smart. I’m shy and creative. I like all types of music and many people seem to like that about me, and they find my skills in art a bonus!
How would you describe how it feels to create your artwork?
When I’m creating my artwork I intend to need a feeling in order to create something relateable that I believe will help others. I also get surreal ideas that I never knew I could come up with. After the artwork is done I feel accomplished and excited to see how my audience would act to such an image I had imagined!
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes for my father. You can ask anyone who knows me personally that I see my father as my favorite artist.
What is it about your dad’s artwork that inspires you so much?
The way my father does his artwork is like no one is watching and he goes with the flow. He paints so softly that it’s actually soothing. He draws realistic things like flowers and butterflies it’s like you can reach out and touch it. He loved to draw animated characters for me on my birthdays and it always brought a smile to my face. I remember he would make sand sculptures at the beach and everyone who passed by fell in love with the piece. He always brought smiles with his artwork and that’s what catches my eye. The fact that he has this skill and he brightens people’s day with the most elegant designs and art pieces. I plan on doing so with my art and so far with all the support I get from people around the globe. It’s honestly so amazing knowing I can make someone, who lives across the world or country, create a smile on their face! Even if it’s for a few seconds.
Tell us about your creative process.
My creative process can arrange from needing to wanting to create something. I usually start by just wandering around physically and mentally. I try to figure out how to imagine this feeling that people associate with this body part, organ, weather, or animal. I imagine the craziest things and sometimes the simplest things. Then I create what I imagine.
What is the story behind your artwork, if any?
Most art pieces do come with a background story of its own or related to me. I’ve been told I am very great at giving advice so I intend to showcase that through my art as well. Every art piece has a title and that title should represent what the picture beholds. It should represent valuable advice or a story that people can relate to. They should be able to picture themselves in the artwork and feel pleased with themselves knowing they are more than just what society labels them as.
