May/June 2018


You is a senior from Laguna Beach High School. Her first art teacher taught her that all art must have a quality of life to it. This continues to influence her style and the bond she feels with each piece she creates.

She also likes to draw dragons in her free time.


Artist Statement

My artwork revolves around socio-economic issues and world events that affect the future of our generation. I create my artworks with the desire to raise awareness and suggest solutions to the problems I study about and view in the media. I use traditional watercolor and ink techniques with Chinese Shan-shui painting to create simple, illustration-like pieces to cover many aspects of events while suggesting that only through collaboration can we better our world.
