“To me art has become a medium I can use to express myself to the world. Art is, at its core, a reflection of its creator. Even if the work does not contain a distinct message that the artist wants to convey it will still show you who they are. I believe that art is something I can make to show other people what I believe, what I think, and what I care about. Although every individual has unique experiences, art is a universal language that can communicate to everyone and can at times communicate raw human emotions in a way language cannot.” Sophie is a student at Martin County High School.
