I am currently a 21 year old artist, attending a community college in Mississippi. Art is a passion of mine and I am constantly working to fight the struggle of not being noticed as the artist I believe I should be recognized as. But with life and art, it goes on. So shall my determination to be recognized.Art is diverse, and my perspective on art varies from other artist. My art work does not pertain to one specific genre or subject, but consists of what I believe to be a challenging piece of art and help me develop as an artist. I believe that not sticking to one subject matter shows my diversity as an artist, showing the audience the wide amount of art work I am capable of. My art style is realistic, I try to capture the same amount of detail that is produced within a photograph. Art is created by the hands, my tools consist of charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and inspiration. The tools do not create great art, but an inspired and dedicated artist creates great works of art. With each new drawing, my skills increase further. I learn from my mistakes, and make sure not to repeat the same error as before. Art creates emotion, demonstrates skill and passion. Furthermore, art expresses who I am, and soothes my mind, allowing me to escape into my own zone. Read more.
