Nascha Lamphere exhibited a senior art portfolio display at Western Wayne’s annual art show on Saturday, May 13.
Nascha focused her senior portfolio on a topic that is close to her heart.
She titled her presentation “The Symptoms of Stress.” Nascha researched these symptoms and created pieces to represent each of them. For example, she made pieces representative of agitation, anger, fatigue, insomnia, forgetfulness, anxiety, depression, etc.
Her favorite piece represented social anxiety and was a drawing of a girl isolated from others sitting on a swing. The hauntingly beautiful picture truly captured the sad feeling of isolation a person under stress sometimes feels.
Nascha plans to study business with a minor in art at Keystone College. She explained her dream job would be to work as a librarian. She feels a strong connection between her reading and her artwork.
“When I read it creates a vision in my head of the story, this connects to when I create art and visualize a piece before making it,” Nascha explained.
