Each month I will be spotlighting one of my students – past or present, and their artistic ventures! I work with students of all ages and abilities and you’ll get to learn a little bit about these amazing artists and their work!
Our January spotlight is on:
My name is Amy Stiegler. I’m 15 years old and I’m a freshman in high school. I have been taking art lesson with Ms. Jenell since 2014. I began to take art classes after I watched a movie and drew the characters and my dad saw and signed me up. Other artists as well as things I see and experience in my life inspire me to create. I love drawing with charcoal and painting with acrylics. Other than visual arts I am interested in photography and music. With my love of music I’d like to become a singer and songwriter. My favorite piece I’ve created is a dragon. It’s my favorite because it was one of the first pieces I did and every time I look at it I get inspired to keep drawing. I listen to music or soundtracks that apply to what I’m working on. For example, when I was drawing a lion, I listened to the Lion King soundtrack. Someday I’d like to try spray painting because I feel it would be fun.
Amy is not afraid to get creative and once she has an idea – she’s determined to create it with the mediums at hand! She works to perfect her art until she’s happy with it and is always willing to give new techniques & mediums a try. Her artwork also reflects her fun loving personality and is sure to send a message of happiness to the viewer!
