Keep Moving Forward” though these words were originally made famous by the great late Walt Disney, Skylar Stewart a twenty year old from rural Ohio and an Illustration major studying at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida still believes they ring true. She focuses on aspiring to that quote everyday of her life whether through her artwork or just living through the pandemic. Her art cherishes all the good in the world and emphasizing valuable lessons. Each work usually starts with the good ole’ graphite sketch but she explores different medias no matter how foreign they are to her. Her family, life experiences, and upbringing are her main inspirations for her work. Growing up, it was a family tradition for her to watch movies every night while eating a bowl of ice cream. It is these moments in her youth she truly cherishes and relishes as she traveled with her family to different worlds where anything was possible. It is her dream to instill this idea of family and possibility into every child or the child within us. She would like to be able to say her artwork made a child laugh, a mother cry, or even a grandpa smile.
