Junior enjoys freedom through artwork

Elaina Padron
Junior Marissa Ricke uses her computer for ideas to paint on her canvas for an art project.

   Junior Marissa Ricke enjoys making all types of art because there are no rules to art. 

   “I enjoy creativity, I like doing my own thing without anyone telling me how to do it,” Ricke said. 

    She doesn’t have a certain thing she draws, just whatever comes to mind. 

    “I don’t have a favorite. I always draw from the mind, whatever it thinks of I sketch out and go from there,” Ricke said..

   Her close friends think that she is a talented person just by seeing a few of her works. 

   “I think that all of her work is really creative and well done, she is talented,” junior Micheal Schliefert said. 

   Ricke doesn’t really know what she wants to do with her art after high school just yet. 

   Everyone has their own way of expressing themselves and art is her way of expressing it. 

   “It is freedom to express myself,” Ricke said. 

      Ricke advises other artists to be themselves.   

   “Just go with your heart, and don’t let other people judge you. There is time for improvement. Don’t let anyone get in the way of that,” Ricke said. 

   Ricke is also good at sculptures and she does animal sculptures. 

   “Her deer sculpture is the best of hers that I’ve seen,” Schliefert said.

   Ricke is good at painting skulls and landscapes, but a lot of people like her skull painting. 

   “I think her art is amazing, she is talented and her skull that she painted was my favorite,” junior Joey Culbertson said.
