Hi, I'm Savy. I'm a Booker T graduate looking to get my work known a little bit more. I will be entering college as a freshman and I'm still figuring out what to do with my life.

Hi, I'm Savy. I'm a Booker T graduate looking to get my work known a little bit more. I will be entering college as a freshman and I'm still figuring out what to do with my life. I do not limit myself to one medium, though I enjoy practicing with illustration, ceramics, and chickenwire the most. On the side I am obsessed with plants and animals. I keep a chameleon, a cat, and a hermit crab, and I grow various plants- succulents and grapefruit being my favorites at the moment. I like to draw my inspiration from these creatures in my care but also from fauna and flora in other places that I vacation at. I am amazed by the things that grow naturally around me without human intervention and most of my art is either along the lines of this or realistic fantasy. Read Less
From an early age art fascinated me. My sister loved to draw and I would always run around in secret trying to trace her art because I thought it was the most amazing thing.

From an early age art fascinated me. My sister loved to draw and I would always run around in secret trying to trace her art because I thought it was the most amazing thing. My four year old brain did not realize this was plagiarism and it wasn't until I got told off enough that I realized I needed to separate myself from her art and branch off. I had many inspirations from detailed nature art that I found on Google to the art that my dad and sister made. I had always had a sort of thought in my mind that my art was special- since I never went to an art school- and when I began classes at Studio Arts to create a portfolio I thought I was above the teaching. Then I actually visited a Booker T gallery opening and was completely changed. I realized I had so much to learn and at this point my art really became my own. I started working more professionally, absorbing all the information I was being taught, and never letting myself believe that I was the best artist. There will always be someone out there with more talent than me but I believe that by continuing to practice and be taught I could further my education and create the best art to my ability.

With the cheapness of materials and ease of work, drawing was always my go-to pastime. It is relaxing but also stimulating which is a nice change from what many people do in their free time.

With the cheapness of materials and ease of work, drawing was always my go-to pastime. It is relaxing but also stimulating which is a nice change from what many people do in their free time. I always have new ideas and don't want to be limited to merely drawing from observation. Through my observation (and common knowledge of physics) I find that my talent is best exploited through me creating realistic fantasy. My fantasy work mostly consists of character designs, creature designs, storyboard art, and landscapes- but I am not limited to just this. Many people judge fantasy art for being unprofessional or cliche, but I am at my most creative when I'm coming up with new and unusual concepts. I find that with my work I'm showing off even more talent because I can make something look realistic without using my surroundings as a crutch. I do stray from fantasy often, I just feel the need to explain how I work and why this is my preferred genre. It comes naturally to me just as any other subject might to another artist. Read Less
