I was born and raised in New Prague, Minnesota. I am 18 years old, and I am a senior at NPHS. I am involved in varsity golf, and I am a football manager. I love being involved in my school and community. I am involved in Student Council, Link Crew, NHS, Yearbook, and PROUD. A sparse amount of people understand this about me, but drawing has been my escape for as long as I can remember. Though I haven’t pursued art in any way, it is a distinguished way to remember what life is genuinely encircling. Life is what we generate it to be, and I love creating artwork that shows my journey through life so far. Although, considerable amounts of people perceive art and don’t understand the significance it brings to the artist, every single detail that goes into my artwork is there for a reason. From the color selection to the random items hidden in the corner, there is a reason for it. My motive for
drawing is different with every art piece. The mood the day brings me can be perceived through my artwork, yet every day brings new challenges and new beginnings. There was one day I sat down at my desk and I just let my imagination run wild. I didn’t perceive what I was intending to execute, nonetheless to this day it is my favorite piece of artwork since it represents who I am and what that day brought me. It manifests my confidence and my ability to abide myself, which is the reason it’s my topmost treasured art piece. I encompass an admixture amount of components, still it’s challenging to personally express myself apart from my artwork. While being timid and private, expressing myself through art is the one way
to express myself to the world. I initially started drawing once I acquired that everyday is a new day that brings new thoughts. The normal feat to perpetrate would be journaling what I was feeling, except to me drawing is the best alternative than writing. Drawing brings me peace and it is easier to detect my emotions through my artwork, more than if I wrote it down. You can also identify the fear I have or the excitement that day brought by looking at my art; however, it’s harder to detect that as easily if I’d journaled it. Drawing has become apart of me, and I don't know where I would be without it. I can detect how much I have grown comparing my artwork from the beginning until recently. It will forever be something I am grateful for obtaining throughout my early life.
