My name is Aline Kieu and I am currently a second year at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently working towards a degree in Astrophysics with a minor in Mathematics. As for my involvement in art, I have been drawing ever since I was in kindergarten and it has always been a passion and one that helps me de-stress from school, and all other work I do. I have long dreamed to become a successful artist, but plans changed during my senior year of high school. Although I am deciding to major on something else based on my families expectations, I still find that through art, it is my only way around compliments because anything I do, to me, feels like I'm always disappointing someone. So, although my art means a lot to me, I finally feel the confidence to share it with all of you and perhaps get you all to purchase them so they may become yours for decoration in your own room or anywhere. I also got into photography when I entered college and took my first photography class. I didn't do so well and I wish I could re-take the class for a better grade but taking pictures and having it turn out good is just so satisfying, it motivates me to take more pictures. Yeah, that's me, thank you for taking you're time to view my work and hope you enjoy!
