In the beginning...

In kindergarten my class was assigned an art project where we would each build a sculpture out of toothpicks and Elmer's Glue. Well I made the tallest (nearly taller than me), most complex structure that fit on a four inch by four inch wooden square. After we finished our sculpture we were allowed to choose a color and the teacher then spray painted the sculpture at home with the color you chose, and gave it back to us to take home. I didn't get mine back like the rest of the students. Weeks later I found out that I had won the grand prize in my school art fair. From that point forward I was hooked, but it wasn't until sixth grade that I met the teacher that inspired my work to get better.

 

Mrs. Stephanie White taught me a little about color theory, how to align letters properly, how to format a mural, and many more art techniques. She worked with all her students one on one to keep our classroom decorated in life size planets or depictions of the seven wonders of the world to name a few of the art projects we took on during my sixth grade year. In middle school and high school I was always in an Art class. Then in college I started out as a chemistry major but I found myself at a museum, painting, or taking photographs whenever I had spare time. I quickly realized I had to change my plans. History had always piqued my interest and art was a passion of mine so I became an Art History major. I had to take studio art classes as part of my major, which were a source of relaxation and fun for me.
