People who know me, know that I am very creative and always find new ways to explore new mediums. I fell in love with the arts when we moved to NC, because in Pennsylvania, they only offered arts to a chosen few. From then on, I took as many art classes as I could and it was love at first sight. It felt so natural, learning new techniques and picking up the materials. Throughout the semester, what inspired me was my love for art and my persistence to develop new techniques and become a successful artist in the making. The reason for me making my art the way I did was because I love exploring new mediums, and when this occurs, I get this urge to create something unique and will fit in with my personal preferences in terms of creativity. Some tools I used through the semester was tempera and acrylic paint, batik, pottery, creating a mosaic, using different pencils to create different shades, and many others. My art, shows my personality and who I am as a person. Art is the way I express myself without using words, because, though I have a way with words, I always found art more interesting because you can so many things using one image compared to using many words to describe yourself. I will continue to create art for it has had a huge impact on me and I do net tend to let it go.
