How long have you been interested in art?
“I have been interested in art for as long as I can remember. I started doing art when I was little and have been doing it to this day. When I was little, I would do art with my dad. When I was younger, I mostly just did drawing and painting, but as I got older, I progressed into different types of art.”

Do you have a favorite art form to create?
“I enjoy doing portraits and perspective drawings. I think it’s fun to recreate people and places. I also like to paint and do watercolor.”

Do you have a favorite material to work with?
“I enjoy working with many materials, but I definitely enjoy painting. I like to do watercolor and acrylic. I also like to use colored pencils to add detail to more intricate pieces.”

How long does each piece of art usually take you to finish?
“It depends on the project I am working on and the amount of time given in class, but it usually is between a few weeks to a month. More detailed pieces take a lot longer than more simple ones. It usually takes a few days to draft out a plan for a piece, and then I can start making it.”

What has been your art journey at WHS? What art classes have you taken, and what are you taking next year?
“I have taken art all throughout high school. I started in art 1, followed by art 2 and now I am in honors art 3. Next year, I plan on taking Advanced Placement (AP) Art. I am also a part of the National Art Honor Society.”

Are you excited to take AP Art next year?
“I am excited for AP because I think it will challenge me and push me to create things outside of my comfort zone. I also think that this class will help me develop art that I will want to showcase for college.”

Has your art style changed over the years?
“I think that my art has definitely changed through the years. I think the difficulty of [my] pieces has increased, and the amount of time it takes to complete them is longer. The materials I use have also differed.”

Where do you find inspiration for your artwork?
“I usually find inspiration in the experiences I have had. I definitely use a lot of my travels to inspire pieces of work. I like to recreate places I’ve been or things I’ve seen.”
