Ever since I was young, I have immersed myself in the arts, always finding a way to create from drawing and painting to making sculptures in the mud. Art has allowed me to be myself and has served as my safe space. When I am angry or upset, I turn to art and put that negative energy to work creating something beautiful. At first, I wanted to be a painter, then a fashion designer, an art teacher, and now an illustrator. Juliana is a student at Clark Advanced Learning Center.
