Petey added, “All the hard work that they’re doing is really like showing or whatever that they all have these gifts at their disposal but don’t know what to do with it.”

Elizabeth Uribe, a painter, spoke about what inspired her to be an artist.

“I was into watching cartoons and films when I was younger,” “I always wanted to work in that environment. Since then art was kinda present one way or another,” Uribe said.

Uribe explained that she grew up art was a part of her one way or another. Whether it was playing the violin in elementary or taking art classes in middle and high school.

“I’m not good at drawing, but I see the vision for something I have on my mind and I start crafting,” the painter said, “I’m better at collaging and doing stuff with my hands. If I have an idea, I just do it.”
