meditative and calming, and their bright colors make me happy. I am really grateful that now I have a host mom who takes care of me, a good home, and friends. As a kid, my real mom was too sick to take care of me due to her mental illness, and I was raised by my grandma until I was 23. I too have mental illness but I am able to overcome it and have a good life. I want to show other people that they can overcome their challenges in life and express themselves through art like I do. 

        My current artwork focuses on portraits of celebrities and the humor in pop culture. I enjoy creating artwork about women whom I look up to as positive role models. I also like to stay informed about current events and be socially aware by watching the news and listening to public radio, in order to find inspiration for drawings and paintings.

        I am 27 years old, St. Louis born and raised. I never really did art or knew how talented I was, until I came here to Fine Line Studios about a year ago. I love the people here and it makes me sad when people leave or stop coming here. Since starting here, I have been introduced to many art materials and techniques that I never knew existed, and it has opened up my curiosity about the possibilities within art. I like to ask questions and learn all that I can from the staff here and from my peers. I have found that I enjoy using big pencils and oil pastels, color pencils and watercolor pencils, and painting with acrylics. My goal is to make my work sellable and become a successful artist.

      I had a bad childhood, but I have been able to overcome that. I often draw houses because I moved a lot growing up, and having a stable home now is important to me. I also create large colorful quilt-like designs that are like comfort blankets to me; the process of drawing them is meditative
