Luka Hayes interviewed Macey Maddy about the self-portrait the junior created in Karen Cooper's art class. Here is what Macey had to say:
What is your piece titled?
Up and Downs
What was the concept you were going for?
“I was going for light colorful flowers in the top left and then kind of darker themed and then lighter flowers again ‘cause my life’s kind of up and down, so I reflected myself.”
What was your inspiration for this piece?
“Well, art teacher Mrs. Cooper, shoutout, wanted us to do something with our portrait that reflected across from us. Not just things we do like sports and stuff, but what goes on inside, so I went with my emotions.”
