For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawing. As a child I would spend hours at a time putting my ideas on paper. In about sixth grade, I started my first sketchbook, which I still have to this day. I filled it with various drawings of various creatures and characters. I feel as though this is what really set my art on the proper path.
Now, I’m 14 years old and a freshman here at UHS, and I’ve joined art club and even started participating in the school plays. So many people are so supportive of my art and I’ve come so far with it. Looking back on what I made as a child, there’s elements that are in my current art. It’s helps remind me that I didn’t change my art, my art evolved, and it will continue to evolve for the rest of my life. – Addy Miller
