My Family

The idea for this project came to me because my family and I have not taken a picture together in a long time. With conflicting schedules, it is often difficult to meet. I felt this was a way for my mom to see us all together and represent us as a family. Two artists have inspired my artwork. The first is Pop artist, Roy Lichtenstein. Using monochromatic colors for each of my portraits gives off a cartoon effect like his style. Like collage artist Romare Bearden, I used mixed media to create backgrounds for my portraits so you can really see what my family is like, not just what we look like. My art can give others a look into my life and my family whom I love.
