COTTWOOD ART FESTIVAL EMERGING ARTIST
BEST OF SHOW & PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD
Richardson High School
Acrylic, Pen, Needle and Thread, Watercolor, Colored Pencils
I have been doing art from the moment I could pick up a pencil. I have always loved the process and journey of creating art. Over the years I have spent time growing as an artist and pushed myself to come out of my comfort zone and experiment. I started with watercolor and have worked with mediums like acrylic, gouache, marker, colored pencil, pen, embroidery/stitching, etc.
Each medium is beautiful in its way and I enjoy discovering how to utilize it. I plan to continue my art journey by forever exploring all sorts of mediums that I can get my hands on. Art is something that will always be a part of my life.
