I was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas and lived there almost my entire life. I’m the eldest of eight children. I am fifteen and first found my love for art in sixth grade. In seventh grade, my art piece “Myself” was selected to be displayed in the Arkansas Young Artist Exhibit. I love drawing people. My school art teacher told me “You always find a way to put a person in your artwork!” I love painting mostly because if I make a mistake it can turn out to make my artwork beautiful! I think my grandmother inspires me the most. She beat leukemia and throughout it she was filled with humor or joy every time I saw her. She didn’t let it affect her.
