In a similar vein, Maya Willis (’24) said her artistic interest has been significantly influenced by the environment in which she grew up, which was filled with a family of artists trained in various styles.

“It definitely had an influence on my artistic life and vision to be surrounded by so many artists interested in many different mediums growing up,” Willis said. “My grandpa was a painter, and my grandma is also super creative. Whenever I visited her, we always used to do arts and crafts and she’d always show me my grandpa’s paintings, it was really inspiring.”
