I've always loved art since I was a child. But you could say I became "serious" about my artistic endeavors when I entered middle school and became a pretty intense anime nerd and always wanted to recreate my favorite characters. This was also the time of my first art classes, which I loved and would always sign up for in the future. As I grew older my tastes changed and I became a fan of gothic imagery and loved to draw portraits.
As I progressed in my schooling, I took as many art classes as I could and loved every moment of it. Upon entering college, I wasn't sure what I wanted to major in and was undeclared through my first year and a half. I was taking a couple art classes, trying to ponder what it was that I wanted to do with my future, what to major in, etc. It came to the point where I was getting quite stressed about it, when I finally asked myself the question, "What could I possibly major in besides Art?" And there was no answer I could think of, so I became an art major.
