The Green and Gold staff is excited for the debut of a new series of articles revealing the underground talents of Wesleyan students. To christen this endeavor, the Green and Gold will highlight talented artist, sophomore Grace Halley. Halley came to Wesleyan as a freshman last year, and has been drawing all her life. Most of her skill as an artist is self-taught, but she takes art classes at Wesleyan and has learned from her mom who took art classes in college and likes to draw in sketchbooks.
Halley hopes to pursue a career as an animator, and she loves to draw her own characters. Most of her work is done on a computer and she often uses Photoshop. When asked about advice she would give to aspiring artists, Halley said, “No one can really fail at art. I hate it when people say they are bad at art. Anyone can be successful when they try.” The Green and Gold staff looks forward to featuring Halley’s art in comic strips in future issues.
