My art is what drives me. As an artist of 18 years of age, my goal is to learn as much as possible. This is the reason my mediums vary from oil paint, to watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, graphite, wood, spray paint, or anything I can get my hands on. Experimentation is key. The process is what matters, but in the end, all I really want to do is move people with my artwork. They need to be able to interact with it on an emotional basis. My aim is for the viewer to be able to relate to it. Therefore, my subject matter is becoming more outspoken; however, I do try to keep some traditional roots as well because I have a love for painting still lifes and portraits. My favorite thing to capture is reflections whether it be in photographs or paintings. To me, it demonstrates how everything has a duality.
Art has always been the center of my life. My father, uncle, and grandmother are all artists, so it has run in the family. As a child, I won the chance to shake hands with Thomas Kinkade in an elementary school art contest, and that moment had an impact in what I wanted to do in life. As I grew up, I made it into the school's art contest every year, then the Youth Capital Art Show twice, and so on. I have won awards at the Georgia National Fair, Lagrange Youth Art Show, the National Beta Convention, and Andrew College. My work has been displayed In the Georgia Capital Building, as well as Valdosta State University, my own home town, and at the State art show. As a high school junior, I worked my way into a group of 46 young artists who, after a grueling interview and testing process, made it into a 4 week program paid for by the state of Georgia called Governor's Honors. My goal in life is to one day be an art professor of curator if being a gallery artist isn't possible. Currently, I volunteer at a shop called Art Works in my home town where I help younger kids make their own artwork for free. I am working on an art education degree at Columbus State University in Georgia.
Art is my life.
