Today we are featuring 10-year-old Isabella T. Isabella lives in Austin, Texas with her mom, dad, and dog, Star. Isabella’s art piece “Ella” was a Top Ten Winner in our Fall 2011 art contest. Ella is a friend of Isabella’s that she was inspired to paint as part of a series of portraits that she is doing on different girls. Isabella is working on a 10 portrait series and trying to capture the essence of each girl she paints.
Isabella has always been an artist at heart and loves creating; whether it be poetry, paintings, drawings, or fashion designs. Isabella tells us, “Art is a huge part of my life. I have been painting since I was 3 years old and have not stopped. I love to express myself creatively. Art provides me with many life lessons — to be bold, to react, to color ‘events’ and know that even in the worst of times there is a different way to look at something. I see art everywhere.”
Congratulations, Isabella, on being selected as a Top Ten Winner! You are a very talented young artist and we hope you continue to enlighten the world with your beautiful talent.
