My name is Sophia Renée Lastra Cardona, I was born in El Paso, Tx and I'm 18 years old. I'm in my senior year of high school and I'll be attending college in the fall of 2016 at the University of Texas at El Paso. Since I was a little girl, my grandfather thaught me how to paint and draw many different things and I developed a skill for it. I love painting, it's a beautiful way to express your thaughts and feelings and let the world know about it. Until today I have started making a job out of it, I have sold 4 paintings and Im in the process of finishing one. My goals in life are graduating from fine arts in college and open a big art school and a gallery where people can come and show about them. I would like to continue painting and be part of big projects.
