Artist Statement

i like i like painting drawing doing new things, and being outside.I love doing things hands on and doing a lot of diy projects. I really love to paint on canvases and making diy projects using tape and then painting around the tape to make my design.

When it comes to my background with art i have only taken one class other than advanced art which would be intro to art my freshman year. Other than this class and intro to art these are my only art experiences. By taking these classes i have learned a lot about art. Techniques how to use certain art tools and some tools that I didn't even know art had.And by being in this class has really shown me what project i truly like doing and some that i really don't like doing.I have learned how to work with tape and paint really well throughout these years.

There really isn't ant artist that have influenced my projects or that have inspired me. I get my inspiration through social media such as Pinterest. And the designs really make me think of an idea and inspire me to be better.Many of my pieces do not look the same.I go back and forth with many of my ideas and projects.I really love doing canvases because there is so much space you can use and do some many different designs on it.I don't think there is a certain pattern or theme to my projects i just go off of what my mind thinks of.I prefer to work with paint and canvases.I do like doing wheel throwing but not to much because it is really hard but sometimes a challenge is fun. I do these projects that i do because it interest me. My favorite project i created was my zentangle elephant because i thought it was cool to have all the tribal designs and i loved having to work around the shape of the elephant to fit my designs into.i used pencil and paper and colored pencils
