How long have you taken art?  

Since middle school.

Why do you take it?

I love it.

Did you start learning art/photo on your own, or have you always been taught in a classroom?

I was originally self taught but improved in school.

What does winning this key mean to you?

I will get to further my art future.

What was your inspiration for Linear Explosion?

My math class because my piece is geometric.
