My name is Elizabeth, and I am an AP art student. I have always loved painting, and it all started in my art classes with Mrs. Murphy in elementary school. At the time I drew for fun and didn’t care if I improved, but then after middle school, I started to explore different mediums, and how to create overall pieces that together formed one strong piece. Then this year I developed a portfolio, which helped create my overall style. My favorite way to paint is to paint portraits with abstracted colored skin. I really enjoy painting and I hope that I can continue my love for art into my career in the future.
