When I look at my work I see a lot of fun, whimsical characters that all share common characteristics. All of my characters are colorful with very exaggerated proportions, each with their own individual personalities. Seeing all of this work together is really exciting to me because even though they are each their own individual projects, they really come together and create a sense of unity. It is also very rewarding to see all of this work together because it makes me realize just how far I have come from freshman year. Freshman year I wasn’t super confident in my art and I was trying to make the same art that everyone else was making, even though I wasn’t exactly comfortable with it. Now, as senior year is coming to an end I am very confident in my art, and even though it is very different from what other peers around me are doing, it is something that I absolutely enjoy doing.In the long run I think that is what really matters the most to me.
The experience of putting together a gallery show was very stressful, but very significant for me because I loved being able to see all the hard work and effort pay off in the end. The gallery show was also very significant to me because it was one last hooray for college, but at the same time prepared me for the future to come. Overall, it was a really great experience for me.
