Senior Linnea Solak is currently involved in Advanced Art and plans on pursuing a degree in graphic design at Taylor University next year.

She enjoys creating things and has been drawing ever since she was little. “I’ve really always loved to draw and create things,” Solak said.

Solak usually finds inspiration for her work from pictures on her phone of places she’s travelled. Other projects just start off as random doodles that she expands upon.

Her favorite kind of art to create is watercolor. “I love how fluid the colors are and how they can either be super saturated or translucent. They’re so pretty,” Solak said.

Solak likes trying all types of art. “I love how you can experiment with different kinds of mediums and really make something unique and beautiful,” Solak said.

Currently, she is working on a chalk pastel piece of a beach and boardwalk from a family trip to North Carolina. “I’ve never used chalk pastels before, so I’m trying all kinds of techniques,” Solak said.

Solak most enjoys the way that art makes her feel.  “Art is a big stress reliever for me because I can turn my emotions into colors and create something out of them,” Solak said.
