Self-Discovery/Self-Portrait by aprilj0313

This is a bust I made for my senior exhibit for my BFA in studio art.

During my journey creating my exhibit pieces, I created my self-portrait, which represents my personal visual connection back to mythology.  That  journey and process includes several questions, that you have to dust off and analyze to grow.  What makes art work into a show?  What is my style?  How do you develop your style?  Those questions were on my mind during my time at the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor and especially while working on this exhibit.  An artist's style is molded from inspiring teachers and fellow artists.  You can develop a love for a particular medium or subject matter like ceramic busts or figures in oil paintings.  During that time you could feel weighed down and frustrated like being stuck in a box.  The bird represents this weight and the Pegasus signifies the opportunity to fly out of that box.  Your style is just sitting on your shoulder waiting for you to catch it.  The cracks represents outside pressures in life that can cause a bump in the road in that discovery.  Everyone has different obstacles but everyone can straighten their dream when surrounded with positive motivation.

April Johnson
Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
Art is a self-discovery process of finding yourself in the middle of chaos which we call life. I have discovered I like working with clay to make sculptural ceramics. I also love oil painting which comes alive with color and lively brush strokes.

My inspiration to make art stems from a love of learning and a curiosity about the nature of people and relationships. As an artist I strive to create works of art that have a personal meaning which also communicates to others. My ambition to become a professional artist has motivated me to exhibit my work as much as possible and my journey to succeed will broaden and illuminate me as an artist. I have an associates in art from Central Texas College and I will be getting my Bachelors in Fine Arts with studio art emphasis at The University of Mary Hardin Baylor in Spring 2016.
