Favorite work of art at the Met: In the Meadow by Auguste Renoir
Secret fact: I was born in Virginia and moved to NYC in 2009.
Description of self-portrait: This is a picture my mom took of me when we went to the Jersey shore for summer vacation, not last year but the year before. I love it because of the timing of the wave. It also reminds me of how happy I was when the picture was taken. I also chose this picture because it was empty; I knew I could add more of myself to it. First, I printed the picture, then added to it with acrylic paints. I feel like adding paint made the picture better represent who I am, and I was able to brighten it up with a little color, which I loved.
