Artist Bio: I am Kaliya Madison, age 16, and trying to better my art skills. You may be surprised to hear that I learned how to draw from cartoons, not from an art teacher.

Artist Statement: I wanted to draw me, my mom, my younger sister, and auntie holding up our DIY fall-related wreaths. Making our DIY fall-related wreaths is how we practice being good relatives in my family. I tried to draw us realistically. It took me two hours just to draw my family because I mainly draw in a cartoon style. This was also my first time drawing realistically.
