Lincoln Senior Strives to express her art and photography

By: Nelson Ma


Rosa Morales, 17 enjoys watching movies such as “The Complex”, and hopes to direct a movie of her own in the future. Her passion is drawing, and photography. She was influenced by her mother to learn to draw and paint through her artwork.  Morales’ favorite artist is Frida Kalo, who was an influential woman, and who focused on mainly self-portraits. She became interested in photography after her mother bought her a brand new camera when she was little. Her favorite form of photography was portraits, because she loved taking photos with friends, and editing them. This inspired Morales to focus on realism, because of the images of people she sees that inspires her to produce a realistic scene that hopefully she can use in a future film she dreams of producing. Morales told me that this quote shows that who she paints, draws or photograph all have meaning to her life, because they all connect in a way in her mind. This mindset of hers allows her to be able to always imagine new images that she can create to look realistic. 
 “ I can relate to the picture, and it shows of a reflection of myself,” Morales said. 
Moving to the U.S was weird for Morales at first, and she didn’t want to let go of her home place in Nicaragua. It was really hard for her to adapt to the U.S, because she was so use to the way of life back at home. She felt disconnected from her family when she left Nicaragua, and now she learns to be independent and do things on her own. Morales’s mother was supportive of her art side, but her father wasn’t interested, but that didn’t stop her from continue doing art even when she immigrated to the U.S.  Being the youngest she always adapted from her brothers and sisters. Having five other siblings didn’t exactly make life easier growing up. She looked up to her sister’s and her best friends Gabby and Danielle.  As time went by Morales’ sisters went off to college leaving her behind. She made a new companion with her cat Venus who changed her life. Venus made her look forward to coming home everyday, and it motivated her to continue working at her best.

“Rosa loves art and she inspires many people on different techniques in art and to me it’s really interesting, “ said Jack.
