“Being able to express my emotions and tell stories visually, as well as capturing real life beauty in the world, is something I want to do for the rest of my life.”

Gabrielle Dedek , Junior Artist

Hi! I’m Gabby Dedek.  I’m a junior at Righetti and I’ve been making art since middle school.  I first made doodles to pass the time, but eventually I found a serious love for drawing and painting.  I like producing art because I find meaning in creating something with my own hands.  Being able to express my emotions and tell stories visually, as well as capturing real life beauty in the world, is something I want to do for the rest of my life.  My favorite medium is graphite.  It’s simple and I like it for doodling and for full pieces.  I want to pursue illustration at an art school.  In art, I have learned how to capture and exaggerate real life in a piece, and how to detail something that was originally just a thought into a full-fledged character or setting.
