"I would consider colored pencil to be my strongest medium, but I feel that this is because it is the only medium I have worked in enough to call a strength. I work in all sorts of sculptural and 2-dimensional mediums, so to pick one as my strength is difficult to pinpoint. I would say that my strength as a student is being a deep thinker. I like to approach everything with a very critical eye, so I never take anything at surface level."

"Growing up I have always dabbled in art. It started out with coloring books and painting out of soup cans in my kindergarten class. Little did I know then, that it would end up being my favorite thing to do and the one thing to get me through a global pandemic. My favorite part about being an artist is the people I have met and been inspired by. Art is such a passionate and personal thing and being able to share that same passion with other people has given me a whole new perspective and component in my life."
