About the Artist

Age: 14

Grade: 9th

School: Liberty Central School District

Aside from my family, nature is really important and when I think of photography I don’t know why but I immediately think of flowers and how connected to nature I am, I spend a lot of time outside. When I was little we had a giant playground in my background and I spent a lot of time out there – in all seasons, we enjoy the little things, the simple things.

This is a picture of my little sister. It makes sense that I enjoy taking pictures of my family. I like to capture their expressions – especially my younger siblings.

This was taken about 2-3 hours before the meteor shower on May 6th. I took this photo because of my love for nature, outdoors, and my passion for space. That night was a really special night for me because it was the first shooting star I ever saw and I got to spend some much needed quality time with my mom. We talked about things that made us laugh so hard that I snorted.

I wanted people to see the beauty in this weed. Dandelions, in my opinion, are really special because after some time they become a wonderful puff of white seeds that you can blow on and make a wish. Dandelion yellow is also my favorite color. I was inspired to take this picture because of my little sister, she was talking to them and telling them about the things that happened that day. Many people don’t know this, but talking to flowers helps growth. You really can learn a lot of things from flowers, like how to care for the environment and be kind to nature and kind to other people. Dandelions are really important because they are one of the first flowers where bees collect pollen.
