The digital age
A high school artist blends natural and technological influences
by Rafael Schultz | North Star Online School
Jaimee Chancy, a high-school senior, draws inspiration from a variety of sources. Notable inspirations include nature, video games, and various genres of art, including Japanese animation. Chancy places great value on self-expression. She is unconcerned whether or not others will understand her art, and she expresses herself through her own style.
Some of her style as an artist is evident in the piece at left, which blends genres and features a wolf—by far her favorite animal. This piece was also inspired by her love for video games with beautiful visuals, such as Skyrim. This piece blends some elements of anime and traditional line drawing, all done digitally.
Chancy enjoys being able to work at her own pace and her artistic expression isn’t limited to the visual arts. This talented teen hopes to also become a music teacher, another way of expressing herself and her artistic vision.
