Dream. Practice. Expand. 





"I don't think about art when I'm working. I try to think about life."

-Jean Michael Basquiat

My name is Hobbs. I am a ten year old Portland, Oregon native who is very passionate about art and dance. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember with my mom, who is a visual artist. I have taken a variety of art classes, mostly through New Orleans Museum of Art. I love drawing because it allows me to give life to my imagination, which I can then share with everyone. I recently learned how to screen print at The Makehouse in Portland which has allowed me to print my original art on shirts.

When I am not drawing or playing with Legos, I am dancing. I take classes at Classical Ballet Academy and Rose City Ballet here in Portland. I have been dancing for three years and hope to be a professional dancer one day.
