Portfolio Spotlight: Emily M

Hello, my name is Emily and I attend George Washington High School. Currently, I’m an aspiring artist working on a sustained investigation of looking into animals in man-made or strange situations.  I started off my project with the initial idea of fantasy but that slowly morphed into bringing awareness to animals issues. As I researched into these things, the more problems seemed to surface. 

Art to me has always been about drawing for others. Yes, I use it to express myself and for my own enjoyment, but I found the most joy from it when I’m able to impact others. Drawing for the awareness of animal issues has given me that motivation and insight to continue creating.
