Prep Academy Chair

I’m the the Student coordinator of Expressions Prep Academy Program. Art has become one of my greatest loves whether it means expressing myself or finding myself through paint and color. It started with learning, which then progressed to exposing my art to the rest of the world. This included being able to display my art at the Bellevue Art Museum and being a Junior Duck Stamp Washington finalist. My passion for art doesn’t stop here. Years of painting and drawing has motivated me to contribute the joy I find with art to others. I teach several kids art while I have volunteered several hours for art workshops as well. I also hold monthly workshops with Paint-O-Rama to raise money for mutual aids in Seattle, and all over the world. I hope to continue to do what I do while I find the most joy in myself with art.
