Each year, I love visiting ArtPrize. Art has always been a part of my life; I especially enjoy drawing and photography. After getting sick with Crohn’s Disease, I learned a new art technique called quilling. To make these paper works, I use a tool with a slotted tip to roll paper strips into tight circles. Next, I pinch the rolled paper into different shapes and glue them into unique patterns. Each design takes about eight hours to complete. After watching YouTube tutorials, I eventually learned how to create my own designs. Now, I even sell my quilling projects on social media. Art helps me to maintain a positive outlook and relax. This year, I’m so excited to be a part of ArtPrize, not as a visitor, but as an actual ArtPrize artist.
