If there’s one thing I have learned during my adolescence is forgiveness. Not only forgiving others, but forgiving yourself. High school wasn’t easy; I was on my own for quite some time. Moving from house to house, I lived with my friends’ families and with their generosity I was provided a place to stay so I could focus on school. With a lot of determination, drive, and a level head, I continued to excel in my studies as well as my passion for art. Forgiving my mother was one of the toughest things I’ve had to teach myself. The energy spent on hate and despise isn’t worth the stress and negativity. I was left out on my own to figure everything out and through trial and error, I grew a tremendous amount. Not only did I mature into an adult, but I turned my life around by making life-changing decisions and come to accept who I am as an individual. Although I grew up attending mass every sunday and attending a catholic elementary school for 7 years, I no longer claim myself to any religion nor practice any religious beliefs. However, due to many series of unfortunate events, I have come to find myself to be a very spiritual being. One of my sub-conscious goals in my lifetime is not to be a perfect person, but more realistically, to feel I have reached enlightenment. Some of the steps I have taken so far to reach this state of comprehension without ignorance is by neglecting my wants and solely focusing on my needs. I’ve also rid myself of all materialistic thoughts as well as consuming myself with image. I think in this decade especially, people are so consumed with the idea of outer beauty and how to define what is beautiful. Finding the beauty in myself as well as the universe, has helped reveal to me the truth behind human soceity and how ugly it really is. I think a healthy body, mind, and soul is important in granting yourself happiness, but you will never be truly happy if you try to strive for perfection. I’ve learned to love every little scar, curve, and imperfection to my body and ultimately, I feel as beautiful as ever. The earth has became growingly important to me. I hiked my first mountain in the Adirondacks only a couple months ago, and it was one of the most rewarding feelings I have ever felt. The walk was beautiful, but there is nothing like standing that tall and seeing as far as the horizon. The air was so crisp and clean. In that moment I couldn’t help but breath deep and feel so fortunate to live on such a beautiful earth. That beauty can be found in the most simple of the

Personal Artist Statement
Something that inspires me to make art is how open it is, you can draw anything you want
to express. If you were only to draw certain things , I think it wouldn't be that fun and inspiring.
Sometimes I draw when I am bored and I also get inspired by music. Depending on the type
of music that I hear that's sometimes what I would interpret.Sometimes artist's artwork look so
amazing that it inspires me to try to do something like their artwork…
The Ramirez Family
A chance encounter, at a creek in Oaxaca, Mexico, evolved into a fourteen-year photographic study of one family’s slow steady evolution and ultimately has become a heart-felt example of their determination and success.
Images of the poor are not rare and there is nothing particularly remarkable about the Ramirez family except that ordinary life is stunning in itself and my pursuit is always to create intimate, emotional, provocative images…
I have always felt art to be a gateway to a special place, somewhere, where I can be myself and express whatever emotions I am carrying. I think art mean more to me then I realize. I do not think I could see myself not doing it. I love the feeling you get when your pencil or brush hits the paper, or when you are creating something amazing in Photoshop. I love the feeling of satisfaction and love when u complete a composition and it look amazing, the feeling of being proud and confident of yourself…
The Scarlet Letter Soundtrack: Artist’s Statements
Selection One: All That I’ve Got – The Used:
This was a selection chosen for Dimmesdale, and I feel it accurate represents the original numbness that he felt, and finally, the explosion of his grief. It also talks, in parts, about how he’s “not lonely”, when he is, in fact, quite lonely. It’s a very nice picture of him having to keep away from Hester, but still remembering traces of her, these things he held in his mind but can no longer give into…
