Patricia Fuentes is a senior in the Visual Arts program at Carver Center for Arts and Technology in Maryland. Her art, “Balance Tower“, was selected as a Top Ten Winner in the Fall 2012 national art contest for students in grades K-12. This means that Patricia’s art was once of the ten best submitted in her age division from the United States and Canada.
Architecture has a big influence on Patricia’s artwork. “My favorite medium is sculpture because I am fascinated with ability to transition my ideas into a 3D form that people can walk around and appreciate from all angles.” Patricia states. “Since I plan on becoming an architect, a lot of my artwork is inspired by architecture and architects I look up to, such as Antoni Gaudi and Frank Gehry.”
