This year I was able to create many pieces where I portrayed different stories and engage my audience to create their own interpretations. I answered the question “How do I portray a story effectively through my artwork”. I created artworks where I included elements such as a pillow, a clock, drips, and different pink dresses. The large watercolor engages a generalized story in exploring the consumerism of in our culture, adolescence, and a fantasy world. I soon realized I wanted my work to be more specific to my own story and experiences in life, especially focusing on senior year. I believe that I was able to portray a story more effectively when I was able to focus on my experiences. Creating these pieces allowed me to reflect on my life and reminisce in the past.
