I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. It has been a very prominent part of my life, and allows me to portray any emotions I may be having. I was a student at LBCC in the year 2019-20 but I took a two-year break during Covid. During that time, I rarely made any artwork, as I went through major artist’s block and was working full-time. Since coming back to school, I have worked on trying to make more pieces. However, busy school and work life can make it a little difficult at times. I want to continue to make more and more art as time goes on. I hope to expand my skills and get better at doing more portrait work.
