Hello! My name is Femilyn but I prefer to be called Femii. I recently moved to the Bronx from Manhattan, where I lived until age sixteen. I came to Youth Insights because I wanted the opportunity to see actual works of art in person, and to learn how artists express themselves in writing as well as in visual art. To me, art is a way to express my emotions. I love drawing and re-drawing pictures of Marilyn Monroe. Her documentaries and the films about her life inspire me to draw portraits of her and of others. I am interested in the self-portraits and journal writing of famous figures in American history. In the future, I hope to have my name and artwork known worldwide, so that I can inspire others in the same way I have been inspired.
