Student Art Spotlight: Elara Martin (April 2, 2021)

My name is Elara Martin, and I’m an art major with a concentration in graphic design and a complement in painting.

I have a passion or storytelling and character design, and it’s something that I try to incorporate into my studio work. Growing up, I was deeply invested in books and cartoons for their compelling stories and characters.

I want to create something similar that viewers can get lost in, whether it comes in the form of a painting or a graphic novel. Stories that introduce voices that are not often depicted in the mainstream is something that I think is very important.

I strive to use my creative abilities to make others feel empowered and connected, in
both my studio and personal work.
