It was a warm sunny day, as I began interviewing Yvonne Pyle, a senior in A.P. Studio Art. This class is somewhat small, however, its influence can be seen all around the school; it is important within the lives of students like Pyle and creates beauty around our school with the art hung on walls.
When asked about where she drew inspiration to create her artwork and how long she has been creating art, Pyle said, ”It was really mixtures of boredom and I suppose the environment plays a role about the subject, and as long as I can remember, I could make perfect stick figures with hair at the age of three.”
She said that she would not do the same type art after after graduating. However, as someone who is artistically talented and visually oriented, She said, “I want to do something artistic, something like costume design.”
Pyles has not only done art as a subject, but has also received awards for her creations. “I have received the art award from this school, for being a good artist. But I have received art awards from the Dress Form and Fashion Teens. which is a fashion show for middle schoolers and high schoolers in the bay area.”
Some advice that she would give to aspiring artists is to “practice, people have always told me how good I am, but I was only as good as people say because I practice and I continue to practice. Even if you think you are good, practice to be even better.”
Art is very important to Pyles, however, her interests are not limited to just one area. She considers art “anything from paintings to sculptures to 2-d modeling to costumes, etc.”
When I asked her about the amount of time she puts in, and how difficult she finds creating pieces she responded by saying that art in general is “not very difficult, however the most difficult things are trying to get an idea, and the execution of an art form that is new to me,” and that,” the more complicated artwork takes me a few hours, less complicated artwork probably an hour, doodles roughly a few minutes.”
Even though her prefered style is “2-d art, using paint, and pen,” to create a career Pyles says that,”I wish to be a part of costume design, or fashion design. Yes it relates to art, art can be anything.”
