Daisy

I am Daisy. I was born in Texas but have been raised in New York City all my life. I am from Brooklyn and I have a Mexican background. Growing up I moved a lot, all over the city, so I focused on writing and looking at art. I used to just write whatever came to mind, whether it was fictional or just my thoughts. To me art means having the ability to express oneself, and whenever I look at artwork I always try to uncover what the artist was thinking. Joining Youth Insights, I hope to gain experience in the arts and have a better understanding of art. One of my favorite artists is Jean-Michel Basquiat, because I believe he is an example of someone who truly expressed themselves in their artwork.

For their final project, YI Writers worked with artist in residence Cameron Crawford to create short scripts and videos that used works of art as characters conversing in a film or that outlined what their ideal museum would be.
