Exploring Culture and Architecture Through Watercolor

Young Artist Madi Matthews Loves Being Outdoors in Nature, Hiking, Running and Camping, but Her True Passion is Painting

When or how did you get interested in art?

I can’t even remember a time that I haven’t been interested in art; my mother is also an artist, so I guess I have just followed in her footsteps.

Painting has always been very therapeutic for me. I think it was when I began finding joy and peace in the process instead of it causing extra stress, that I could truly call myself an artist.

—Madi Matthews

What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of my AP portfolio this year. Going into it, I didn’t realize how hard and rigorous it would be to get all 24 pieces done in time, but I was able to do it, and I’m proud of that.

What are your future career goals?

I want to be able to start my own business doing custom art for others. That would help me to do what I love and make things that others could love as well.
