At AS220 Youth, I make photographs, I dance, I draw, I paint, and I work in fashion design. I started making art in 7th grade. I like to focus on the process of making art because it keeps my thoughts in check – all I can think about is finishing that line.


In my art I’ve noticed some themes such as fashion, pop art, feminism, body image, beauty, pattern, and color. One day I would like to look back and have some perspective about what I was going through at the moment I made the work of art. I want my art to be reflective of who I am and I want others to be able to reflect on themselves when they look at my art.
