Some of you may not know one of Houston’s finest artists. Senior, Krista Rowland, explains about her current art and plans to pursue it in the future.

Ashley: How did you get started in art?

Krista: “I knew I had a talent in art, but I really didn’t get invested in it until sophomore and junior year when I got more serious about it.”

Ashley: Where do you find inspiration?

Krista: “My art teachers. I also use things going on in my life in my paintings. If I have a problem with something, I work it out in the picture through the art.”

Ashley: When you do art, do you have any rituals?

Krista: “I listen to music the whole time I paint. I just have a playlist of electronic music and set it on repeat and go. I’ll end up painting for six hours without realizing it.”

Ashley: What’re your plans for the future with art?

Krista: “I’m hoping to go to Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. A degree from there opens up a lot of doors for a career. I could see myself in graphic design creating music posters, websites, album art, and stuff like that.”

We wish you the best Krista! We know you will make us proud.
