Growing up, my family moved often. I was lucky enough to find something would stick with me no matter where I was, and that was my art. My sketchbook was attached to me at the hip, and by bringing that grimy, beat-up journal everywhere I went, I started to get in the groove of life-drawing. I loved to draw people: I would go through phases, where I only drew eyes for a month. And then noses, and then hands, and then ears. But OCSA opened the door for the possibilities of my pieces.
Being impulsive and impatient, 1-minute loose figure sketches proved that I could use those traits to my advantage. Art can be what I wanted it to be without compromising myself.
My future plans…
I am going to be going to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as an architect major in the fall. But during this period of my life, I hope to keep my art alive on a larger scale. I want to incorporate things that I am excited about into my architecture and skew away from traditional stylings. My goal is to keep it as weird as possible.
My advice for my younger OCSA Classmates-
Don’t take any of your time here for granted. Every day is a possibility to try something new and move out of your comfort zone.
