Keren Chi Mejia, Painter

I have been drawing since I was a little girl.  The main reason why I paint is because I have always been reserved about my feelings and unable to express myself through words. Once I start painting I feel like I let other emotions out and it helps my stress. My favorite medium is graphite, but the more I work with acrylic paint the more it becomes my favorite medium. I plan to get a minor in art once I get accepted into my dream school. For now I can only focus on my major ( Biology) to be able to finish in two years, but I will be taking one art class this upcoming semester. I chose painting because I was inspired by my mother’s desire to have a daughter who knew how to paint, with time I can say this was a good decision.
