About the Artist

Age: 16

Grade: 10th

School: Goshen Central School District

Everywhere you go, the scene that nature shows us changes and the lighting is always different, sometimes clear and other times hazy. I’ve been taking pictures just around my house. What has been amazing is to see the spring growth which makes me happy – it is the kind of thing that brings something positive to my life.

Snowing Into Spring, 2020

This is a picture of a snowball bush in my front yard. I took this photo because I liked how they were staggered and that you could see the depth of field going back. Choosing this was definitely easy for me because when I first took this and showed it to my mom, she loved it.

Spring Awakening, 2020

This is a photo of a tree in my backyard that is starting to sprout. The buds on this branch are growing to become beautiful flowers. I chose this picture because the color of the buds are pretty and the sky in the background gives the photo a pop of color that makes the buds stand out more.

Spring Has Sprung, 2020

This is a picture of the same tree in my backyard. The buds have blossomed into flowers and it's a sign of progression in the world (today’s society). I chose this photo because it’s showing positivity during this hard time and that things will get better.
