Art has been a passion of mine ever since I was little. It was first introduced to me when my mom signed me up for a painting class at The Art Place. I was hesitant at first, but gradually began to enjoy the relaxing and stress-relieving feel of stroking a brush across white copy paper. There were no limits or rules; whatever came to mind is what I painted. As I grew up, more and more kinds of art came about me. From drawing to coloring to sculpting, it all let my creativity and personality shine. Still today, I notice the impact art has on my life. From taking a sketchbook with me on every trip to finding myself doodling while taking notes in class, the love of art is just like a pair of shoes - I never leave home without it.
