Bio
I have a phenomenal interest in the field of art. From a young age I was an admired art but never understood the true meaning behind it until I was at the age of thirteen when I began drawing. I was interested but didn’t have the funds to get an art teacher or lessons so I decided to teach myself. I practiced everyday for a whole year improving on shading and proportions. Art began to be a part of me. Everyone who knew me knew I drew and saw my potential of greatness. My interest in art captured me and made me into a whole different person who views the world in a new perspective, improving memory and creativity skills. The most interesting thing about art is being able to take a tool and put in on paper to either make it look so real that you can reach out and grab it or just to express my imagination.
