“My entire world revolves around art. I cannot think of a memory I have predating my love of it. Art is
what keeps me humble, what keeps me guessing and tying, what exercises my humanity. But my love of
art did not grow overnight. In the 18 years that I’ve liven on Orcas, my desire to create has been met
with encouragement from my family, my friends and my teachers, always pushing me to explore new
mediums and techniques. (Although oil and charcoal will always be my favorite) I am so grateful to my
community for the support and encouragement that I have received. I know that this is the reason I
have taken my art as far as I have and the reason that I will be attending Tufts University this fall to
pursue a degree in Fine Arts. I am so excited to be heading off into an even bigger art world, and I look
forward to sharing all my future creation with the island community that inspired them . – Myla Ross
