In November of my senior year I completed my first oil painting from life of my best friend (seen directly to the right). Ever since, I have been following my passion for painting people and have attended many workshops to accomplish this. I find a large source of inspiration from the artists John Singer Sargent, Rembrandt, and Cezanne.
College Mixed Media
JSS in Civita, Italy
2 week program in Civita Castellana, Italy. Led by Israel Hershberg with visiting artists Ann Gale and Connie Hayes.
I started doing pet commissions after I painted a picture of my dog (seen to the right) for my dad for Christmas three years ago. I enjoy painting animals in my free time and consider it my part time job.
High School Portfolio
This portfolio consists of artwork completed during my time at Notre Dame de Sion high school in Kansas City. Three years ago, in my AP 2-D Design class, I concentrated on “The Stages in a Woman’s Life.” I spent a whole year creating pieces focused on this topic, and then eventually submitted my portfolio to the AP College Board. Last year, in AP Drawing, I decided to take a broader approach by labeling my concentration “Edges.” In July of 2014 and 2013 I heard back from the College Board and learned that I received a score of 5, a perfect score for both my junior and senior year.
"The London Review will allow students to plan and research a visit to London, to spend Spring Break of 2016 visiting London, and to create a publication of reviews and essays about their stay.
Students will spend the weeks in the semester before Spring Break deciding on the productions and exhibits they plan to visit. They will conduct research on those events, each student specializing in a particular aspect of the visit. They will also study the genre of the literary/arts review, examining audience and publication possibilities.
After returning from London, the class will spend the remainder of the semester publishing The London Review 2016. Each student will be responsible both for writing reviews and for helping to put together the journal."
