November Artist Of The Month: Savannah Kyer

Senior Savannah Kyer.

Q: How long have you been creating art?

A: I’ve been really creative for as long as I’ve known how to write. Before I knew how to write, I thought that cursive looked really cool, so I’d scribble on pages and then make things out of those scribbles.


Q: What is your inspiration to keep creating?

A: I like art that makes me feel something and that means something to me. I paint people or animals that I love.


Q: How would you describe your style of art?

A: Very scribbly. It’s very much a ‘trust-the-process’ thing. Ever since I started painting, I started being more freehanded and not looking at as many references. That was when I developed how I use color in unique ways through scribbles.


Q: Why do you think art is important for people to see?

A: I think art is a universal language. Appreciating someone’s heart and soul that they put into something is one of the best things that you can do as people to appreciate each other for what we are.


Q: Do you plan to continue your artistry post-high school?

A: I am going to Iowa State for Art and Design.


Q: What do you hope to convey to people through your art?

A: I hope to convey an emotion, whether that be a call to action or more of a happy aura.
