Melinda Modisette is currently a senior at Albuquerque Academy. She has taken art classes for eleven years and is now beginning her twelfth. Her love for art, however, started the moment she could pick up a color pencil and draw along with her 外公 (grandpa). She plans to minor in Visual Arts in college and continue to enjoy art of all forms as an essential part of her life. Her inspiration stems from people and the emotions they invoke in her. Her pieces range from abstract shapes to extremely calculated geometric formations, yet all of them are tied together with a unique emotion and feeling. Melinda aims to major in Engineering and Computer Science in college and to pursue a graduate degree in Business.
