Hi! I’m Isabelle, or Izzy. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, and I have had the privilege of accessing some of the world’s greatest museums. My favorites include the Whitney, Museum of Modern Art, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. I heard about Youth Insights through friends of mine and decided it was a good program to apply to since I’m so interested and inspired by art. I love spring, being barefoot, and all forms of art. I’ve always been interested in fashion and have found it to be an excellent way to express myself. I love to draw and paint as well.
Museums are very comfortable places for me. I can sit in front of a painting and appreciate it for hours without realizing that time has passed. I feel that it is hard to understand everything about a work of art, as the artist’s ideas are sacred and special. I’m absolutely in love with Andy Warhol, who expresses chaos and the mess that life can be through color and arrangement. He seems to make beauty out of literally anything, which is something I strive to achieve. I hope to work in the art field as an adult (or hopefully sooner). If it’s not creating the actual artwork, I feel as though I’m also capable of curating, which is an art in itself. Wherever I am in the world, all I need to be happy is to be surrounded by art and creativity.
