Artwork by Ana Becerra
I’m a 16 years-old student from the Dominican Republic. Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved art; whether I was coloring or spraying paint, I have always been into art.
When I turned 14, I began to invest more time and dedication to my art. My main focus are portraits, since I believe the most beautiful thing is the human face. It is such a complex thing to do but it called my attention right away.
I’ve never taken any kind of art courses, for a reason that is unknown to me. Although, that does not equal that I’m uneducated in the arts.
I began to watch YouTube videos of artists doing their work, they would show step by step and while doing it they would give tips and recommendations on how to draw, and so I learned.
Almost 3 years later, here am I, still full of passion and thriving to learn more. I consider myself pretty talented. I’m praised often and I couldn’t be more grateful. For me art is everything, I feel that God put me in this world so I show my talent. It feels natural, like a second skin.
I only draw in ink. Sure, I always do a first layer of charcoal for the main sketch and then the shadings are come in pencil. I want to expand my horizons and learn a lot of techniques that are still unbeknownst to me.
I believe that Old Masters Academy ™ can help me and guide in my artistic path, they can give much more advices than I could think of, and maybe even show me my path of success.
I want people to vote for me because there is so much left to learn. My life is just beginning, and so is my career. I want people to see my art, to feel connected to it, to criticize it, to feel something different when they see my art.
