My name is Sarah Lano. I was born in Brunswick, Maine. I have one sister. I speak english at home. My career goals are to go to art school and become a fashion designer. In five years I see myself finishing college and getting a job at a fashion house. I have had some people in my family attend art school, but they are distant relatives, but my mom used to take painting classes when she was younger. I am most proud of the way my artwork has improved throughout high school, while taking many different art classes. In my free time I like to create art; I love drawing and painting most of all. I also like to play sports and sing with my friends. I enrolled in this course because I really liked taking photo 1 and learning how to take better photographs and I wanted to learn more about taking photography. The photographers that I am most interested in right now are Jacques Lartigue and Steve Mccurry. My ideal job would be a fashion designer, but I want to combine multiple different elements of art into my designs; such as drawing, painting, and photography. Three adjectives others might use to describe me are, artistic, musical, and driven.
Shepard Fairey, Defend Dignity, 2008, Poster
I am drawn to this work because of the social/ political message behind each of images. I really like the color selections and graphic shapes created in these images.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Mona Lisa, 1503, 2′ 6″ x 1′ 9″
I am drawn to this work because of all the mystery behind the artist and the image itself. I really love the way this is painted with the attention to realism and scenery.
Vincent Van Gogh, Starry Night, 1889, 2′ 5″ x 3′ 0″
I am drawn to this work because of all the texture and colors incorporated into it to make it all flow together.
Gustav Klimt, The Kiss, 1908, 5′ 11″ x 5′ 11″
I am drawn to this work because of the use of gold and patterning in this painting. I love all of the colors that Klimt used to show patterns and details on the garments.
Frida Kahlo, Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, 1940, 1′ 7″ x 2′ 0″
I am drawn to this work because of all the textures and colors of the leaves and the serious messages behind all of Frida Kahlo's work.
