My name is Lillias Yearwood and I am from Calgary, AB. I realized my love for drawing and painting in kindergarten and have been pursuing that passion ever since. Art class was always my favourite and most important class for me. I made sure to take all the art classes I could throughout junior high and high school. In high school I started to take a liking to photography and I thought I would pursue that in college when I applied for the Alberta College of Art and Design. After my acceptance into ACAD, I took many different classes such as photography, drawing, sculptor, and design communications. For second year, I had to apply to get in to photography or design. I applied for both (expecting only to get into one!) and I got into both so I had to make a tough decision! I was the only student to get into both programmes that year which I consider an important achievement in my life. I ended up choosing design and being a major in character design. I realized that I love creating characters, worlds and telling stories!
