Meet Lizzy

YACster Lizzy Lizzy, a 16-year-old Junior at Pacific Grove High School, has been a member of YAC for a year and a half and loves being part of such a “colorful, happy, creative” community. Being a YACster helps her to better recognize how diverse the world is – how unique and yet the same people are. Lizzy, who describes herself as a thoughtful young creative, first remembers loving art when as a preschooler she painted an outline of herself on butcher paper and was excited to display it as she graduated to kindergarten. She spends a lot of time drawing, either doodling on her notes or in a proper sketchbook, and is inspired by her family, nature and by artists that she finds on the Internet. People who have done impressive, important work with their life, such as Nelson Mandela and Albert Einstein, specifically inspire her. Her work often focuses on people because they are “diverse, interesting and weird” and Lizzy was most proud of her art when she won a sculpture competition wherein her wax piece was made into a bronze copy. In addition to improving the mediums she already works in, Lizzy desires to expand her subject matter as well as explore using oil. With additional interests in science and history, Lizzy is also a passionate reader. In ten years she would like to be a successful adult – which means graduating college and working towards a career doing something both productive and entertaining. In the meantime, she will continue to find inspiration from the work and talent of her peers at YAC. See Lizzy’s work here:
