My name is Amelia Anderson. I was raised in Park City, UT. After finishing high school I came to UAF for college. I spent four years in Fairbanks and currently live in Anchorage. I am on my last semester of a Civil Engineering degree. I am excited to learn more about art during this course.
Banksy. “Camera Man & Flower.” Collider, 28 Apr. 2010, 402 Main Street, Park City, UT, collider.com/more-banksy-artwork-revealed-in-park-city/. Accessed 5 Sept. 2017.
One of my favorite pieces of art is this Banksy mural located on main street of my hometown. My personal relationship with art is fairly small. I am not an artist by any means, the most artistic I get is with those adult coloring books and a pack of gel pens. Although, I have always appreciated art and the role it plays in our day to day lives. Growing up, my parents had all sorts of artwork hanging in our home, it brought personality and color to the house. Also, every peice had a story behind it of where it come from and how it was important. I just recently moved into my first place that wasn’t a dorm or my parents/families house and I am slowly but surely building my own small collection of art.
