I thoroughly enjoy painting, drawing and taking pictures. I grew up in a very creative household and have been creating art since I was little, I even won an art contest in third grade. My artwork has been featured in the library at my junior high and high school and used as examples for future students in art classes. I was very involved in the art community and I worked helping children learn and make art through the Santa Barbara Museum of Art throughout all of high school. I took AP Art as well as earning an art scholarship (the Rick and Regina Roney award) through the Santa Barbara Scholarship Foundation my senior year in 2011.
