Ahn Huynh Bio:
My favorite mediums are colored pencils and oil paints. I like colored pencils more because I can put a lot of detail into one drawing, and the pencil is easier to use. Though, I like oil paints as well because I can mix the colors easily, and the painting has a depth of space and looks more realistic.
At first, I did not think I would like art at all because, to me, it was only a hobby. When I was in Vietnam, my friends that lived in the same neighborhood were all good at drawing. They would usually draw many famous characters that appeared in the comic books, and somehow I got involved in the group. I have come to like drawing now. My inspiration began when I was in my senior year of high school. My art teacher developed my curiosity and creativity in arts which continues to inspire me to improve my skill.
I was not planning on pursuing art as my major before. However, I am sure now that I want my future career to involve art since, what was once just a hobby, has become a passion. I want to continue to improve my skills, and ultimately become a professional artist.
