St. Brendan High School sophomore Alexandra Moros has been drawing since she can remember, and it has paid off.
Her colored pencil drawing, inspired by a young boy named Orlando whose photo she saw in a National Geographic Magazine, was submitted by her art teacher, Yazmin Lopez, to the 15th annual Student Showcase at the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum
More than 340 pieces of artwork were submitted in five different categories — Digital Art, Graphics, Mixed Media, Painting and Photography. Alexandra’s piece, which earned her an honorable mention in the High School Graphics Division, was one of only 25 pieces chosen to be displayed at the 65th annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art weekend in January. Alexandra also was invited to attend a private reception honoring the 25 student artists whose pieces were showcased.
Alexandra aspires to incorporate her artistic talent into a career as a Graphic Designer or Illustrator. Although she is only a sophomore, she plans to further her education by studying at Pratt Institute, Ringling College of Art and Design, or SCAD-Savannah College of Art and Design.
