Lilliann Isabel Meek firstname.lastname@example.org Text 714.225.7741 Artist Statement/Bio: What role would I want art to play in my life? Well, as far as I can reflect back onto my life, art already has impacted me so much. It helped me learn educational information that I could have never learned because of my learning disabilities that restricted me from seeing the world, "normally". But recently, art has helped me get back in touch with my culture. It helped me get visuals and different perspectives of my ancestors in Mexico and the natives that inhabit the area that I am from. Aside from my cultural influenced art and the rerooting that art established for me. I want art, in my life, to impact me by capturing the beauty of not just culture, but different lifestyles, and nature. I want to combine my culture, and nature together that would hopefully inspire others to go outdoors for those people who live in urban areas.
