“I’ve been drawing since I was a little girl. My mom said I would draw pictures on the wall behind furniture, and she would find them when she moved the furniture around. I took AP art in high school, and that’s when I learned how to paint. My paintings got first place at my high school art show.
“I’m currently a senior going into my last semester at Kent State University. I’m majoring in sculpture, but I mostly do woodwork and ceramics. Then I’m off to get my masters in art education.
“I enjoy working with people. Each piece has to be a person. No abstract, just people. In the metal welding piece (shown in the far left case), the project was making people without using faces. I had to summarize the person’s entity without using their face. I rely on faces to much, so I relied just on clothing.”
