My name is Erin Jones. I am 17 years old. I attend Palmer High School and I have lived in Colorado Springs my whole life. Art has always been blended into many aspects of my life, having been raised by two artist parents. My significant artistic and personal evolution in recent years has led me to realize that art is my true passion. I live for the creative process, and I long to impact the world around me. I am inspired by the possibility of bringing the human race together and giving them the chance to experience a small piece of myself, which lies behind every brush stoke, pencil mark, line, shape, and blend. My only hope is that those who see my expressions will find for themselves some meaning or significance that will impact their own lives.
