How did you first get involved with ASLD and when?
 I first got involved with ASLD early last year in 2019 (January?). My mom helped me apply for art classes that would help me improve my art skills.

How has ASLD shaped you as an artist?
ASLD has given me a great foundation in classical art skills, an opportunity to build community and network with other artists

What faculty members have you taken courses with at ASLD?
Sandy Ceas, Tiffany Miller Russell, several other teachers I can’t remember

What do you like about the ASLD community?
The classes and teachers. I like meeting other artists from the community and checking out the art exhibits.

Anything else you want to share with us?
 It is really hard to be a person living with a disability. Art gives me a space that I can be myself and use my skills in art to help me cope with my day to day life.
