This is a painting I did of a farm stand last year.
It is a recreation of an original picture with a few tweaks.
From the old picture a new background and different
vegetables were drawn. In this photo, I am holding
a photocopy of the original painting.
This is a picture I drew of one of my closest friends and me when we were younger.
In it we are at the boating section of the camp we work at together. This piece is still
a work in progress.
This was a fun end-of-year project my art class and I did last year. We drew
on white shoes with different colored Sharpies, then bled the color with
alcohol. I had a little too much fun coloring my shoes here…
This is one of three lamps that I redecorated. I had always thought about
how cool reading lamps made from the pages of a book would look, and when

This is a reproduction of a photo of a monarch butterfly sitting on a lilac.
My mother took this photo, and in 7th grade I decided to recreate it using acrylics and
tissue paper. The crumpled paper resembles the 3D look-and-feel of the lilac, and the
butterfly was painted with vibrant acrylic colors.
12″ x 9″ canvas
This is the first painting I ever did in my extracurricular art class. It has an angled
perspective of a red barn and a white house. Because it was my first painting it
took me nearly as long as my lily painting to complete! The worst part was painting
dozens of puny windows on the houses, which I wasn’t satisfied with until they
This is a contemporary piece I made at home.
I created it by drawing a tree on the back of a
canvas and then I cut it out. After a coat of black
spray paint it looked like something out of a
