Shown in front of a crowd of people, senior Alice Ji stands with her acrylic self portrait, “When I start with a painting, I have one main subject that I want to be the focal point, and smaller things I want to draw with it. Paintings become a cluster of these two: Around the person, I like to have more fantastical elements,” Ji said. Several of her portraits focus on people due to the level of depth and detail she can invest into them, “As for what inspires me to create art, I paint people because I feel its a lot easier to express emotion or tell stories when there is a person in it. For me, its just the fundamental idea of making something that you love,” Ji said.
