My name is Dakota Bertholet and I am a freshman participating in the Art I class. My daily life consists of reading, sketching, listening to bands and more. I’ve been drawing ever since I could remember and hope to continue as I grow older. My drawings are leaning towards the realistic side while not quite there. For most of my pieces I tend to sketch images of people but sometimes with some sort of twist or with a representation of something deeper than the picture itself. I will find pictures taken of people online and add my own touch. I am most inspired when I’ve had a long stressful day or something big on my mind. For me drawing is a way to unwind and to have a few worry free hours. My pieces are done on sketch paper and either regular graphite or colored pencils depending on the picture type.
