Hey! My name’s Ally, I’m 17 years old, I am a high school student, and I live in the Chicago area. I love drawing, coding, photography, poetry, bowling, and tennis. I started drawing/painting when I was about 6 years old and have been doing it ever since. My work was featured in Naperville Women’s Club’s Art Fair starting 2015, as well as in the school’s art fair (2015-2018), and I am currently a member of the Naperville Fine Art League. Starting freshman year I am proud to have taken part in the Girls Who Code program, graduated in 2016. Meanwhile, I’ve discovered digital drawing/graphics and I like it very much; my intention is to focus more on it in the years to come.
I started photography in 2015 and really like it.You can check out my work (and not only) on this website as well as on my Naperville Fine Art League page.
The beginning of 2017 had a great and creative start – I’m glad I didn’t say no to a wonderful experience that was completely new to me at that time, but proved to be a great and meaningful one a little bit later: icon painting. Being a part of the Icon painting course organized by my local church gave me the chance to develop my drawing and painting skills, as well as my knowledge about religion, art culture and history.
Some of my hobbies are: modeling, video making/editing, singing and playing the guitar.

Starting November 2017 I am Youth Chapter Art Coordinator and Volunteer within SPO non-profit organization for US & Canada. For me, it is a wonderful experience to practice drawing and painting and work with other students from different schools, high schools and colleges on several art projects. Our work supports fundraising for orphan children.
In 2018 I’ve discovered the world of poetry. You can check out my writing here:https://www.instagram.com/oceanbluesoul/?hl=en
Sports: Although I have done several other sports in the past, as of 2016, I joined my school’s bowling team. In our first tournament, we placed third. Starting 2017, I joined the school tennis team and am pursuing my interest in tennis. In October 2017, at the end of the season, I ended up in second place 2nd singles at the DuPage Valley Conference.
A poem that speaks to me:
“i hardened under the last loss. it took something human out of me. i used to be so deeply emotional i’d crumble on demand. but now the water has made its exit. of course i care about the ones around me. i’m just struggling to show it. a wall is getting in the way. i used to dream of being so strong nothing could shake me. now. i am. so strong. that nothing shakes me. and all i dream is to soften.”
