[su_dropcap style=”flat”]T[/su_dropcap]HE PERSISTANT change in my childhood has rendered me to be sensitive to the environment around me, because, after experiencing so many, I am acutely aware of the factors that influence my emotions relating to that environment. I was raised in a family that traveled frequently. I feel that this exploration of other cultures and continents was a very influential aspect of my childhood. I have now grown to crave the spontaneity and adventure of exploration.
This project is testament to the way specific places make me feel, thoughtfully portraying the similarities and differences experienced in each location. I am interested in this because for me, these similarities and differences are what make the world diversely fascinating. There are elements in some of the drawings that are similar to each other, emphasizing that there are many ways in which we are cross continental. Also, with equal importance, differences are shown to portray the individual beauty and unique qualities of some locations to acknowledge the world’s incredible diversity.
