My name is Kate and I have lived in Manhattan my entire life. I have gone to school in Manhattan since pre-school, and New York is my home. My family consists of a lot of artists and they have made me question and appreciate all the art around me. I have grown up surrounded by, and learning about art, visiting some of the most beautiful museums in the world.
I enjoy reading, traveling, walking around the city, and doing new things. I am interested in photography, silk screening, and writing, and hope to do more of these things in the future. One of my favorite artists is Andy Warhol. I love his work and also find his personality and ideas extremely fascinating. It has always been important to me to be able to try new things, learn new things, and visit new places.
I am inspired by everything that surrounds me. Art, fashion, books, and growing up in New York City are probably my biggest inspirations. Books have heavily influenced the way I think, and have helped me form my own ideas about life and everything in it. I love reading books that I can relate to and books that I can learn from.
Art has always been a prominent and important part of my life. To me, art is the ability to capture one’s inspirations in some way, and the ability to express one’s ideas. In my future, I hope to find any artistic talent I may have, and use it to its full potential.
