My name is Mya Bailey, and I'm a Senior at Ronald Reagan High School. I'm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and, since I've only lived in one place, my curiosity and self-interest in taking on new endeavors, although slightly hesitant at first, reaches high velocities. When it comes to the arts, my mind has fluctuated with creativity and the passion to create characters and ideas ever since I was really young. Both animation and web comics, and the love that people have for such things, have motivated everything I do to this day around art. Ultimately, going into a field that lets me capture this is a long awaited dream of mine and I hope to grow my skills enough to reach it.
In my two years of IB Art, I would like to explore the theme of teenage expression and the feelings, emotions, and attitudes of someone like me in modern time. Most importantly in my art, I want to shine through and make something that's really telling, art that will make the viewer feel something.
