From a young age, junior Kaylynn Crowder always had an interest in art, and she thanks her mother for it all.

“I think I am good at it and I like to do it,” Crowder said.

Although Crowder enjoys many types of art, she has one particular preference.

“I like more of a cartoon style, but I excel more in realism, but cartoon is more fun,” Crowder said.

Crowder looks up to artist Andy Warhol because of his style.

“I like a lot of Andy Warhol pieces. Even though he does more print making stuff, I just like his style,” Crowder said.

To art teacher Ted Gasper, Crowder’s style stands out from her peers for it’s versatility.

“Kaylynn’s style is pretty unmistakable, and she’s able to turn it off and on when she wants to, so she can do stuff that’s really realistic, or she can do stuff that’s really in left field,” Gasper said.

Gasper has helped Crowder to broaden her skill set.

“He has introduced me to a lot of things I haven’t done before, like water color,” Crowder said.

Crowder plans on furthering her artistic passion in the future.

“I am looking at art colleges because I am a junior,” Crowder said. “I don’t know what I am going to do, maybe animation.”

Not every work of art is a masterpiece, as each artist has his or her own struggles.

“Getting it to look like what it looks like in my head on the paper is hard,” Crowder said.

Gasper admires Crowder’s strengths in her art work.

Gasper said, “Crowder’s strongest point is her style because it is aesthetically pleasing, draws in viewers and takes them on a journey through her art.”
