When I was younger my mother told me to try sports. I tried cheer leading and found out that wasn't for me. Then one day I was waiting for my mother after school and the gym was being used for volleyball practice. I ended up just helping return balls over the net and the coach told me I should tryout. The next semester, I did and I found out that I loved it. I then played volleyball throughout high school, club seasons, and 3 seasons of college club. It truly has made an impact on my life and it is therefore why a lot of my art work will consist of volleyballs. I actually did an art project in high school where I painted several volleyballs and nets across the canvas in overlapping patterns. I love this image and it is posted in my office at home.
