My life has been filled with art since I was a child. My mom’s oil paintings and my dad’s porcelain and ink paintings were the earliest memories of my childhood. I spent most of my time drawing and painting. I enjoyed every second of it, because there is no right or wrong in the world of art.
My parents allowed me to freely experience art, so I had a late start in practicing traditional techniques and traditional figure drawing. Despite learning some basic drawing skills late, it did not hinder me from continuing to create art. Skills can improve with enough practice, but to infuse one’s soul into art requires the artist to fully understand and embrace themselves. As I grow older, the inspirations on my art creation process has expanded to artists, movies, books, stories, and other visual or physical information I can get from the reality. The mixture of inspiration increased my interests in mixed media, sculpting, and metaling and jewelry making. With these mediums, I can create the sense of space and express my opinions and emotions though my artwork.
A future plan is a hard thing to talk about. Since I am an emotional person, I will always change my plans when I change my ideas or opinions about something. However, I do have a basic plan or goal for my future. Graduate from college with a high score will be the bottom line of my future plan, other than that, I will attend programs, tournaments, or internships related to my major to help me build more experiences. No matter which company I join after graduating from college, I will try my best to make new friends, learn, gather information and work hard for my job to help me move forward. Regardless of time and environment, I believe expanding one's knowledge is always the correct thing to do.
My advice for my younger OCSA Classmates-
Never lose too much sleep, no matter how much homework you have left to finish. Health is the most important factor, we need to care about our health as long as we are alive.
