My name is Annika Kirkland, and I am a current student at Northern Virginia Community College. I graduated high school with a Visual Arts Certificate from the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts program at Colgan High School. I'm currently working on illustration commissions and completing my degree. Born in Virginia, I want to use the mediums I knew best to influence the way people think, view others, and routinely see the world around them. I want you all to be inspired by the artworks you see. I will one day become a Storyboard Artist, and hopefully with the help of others, produce a cartoon.
