My name is Matthew Aceves, I grew up in Elysian Valley also known as Frogtown. I am 16 years old and attend Saint Francis High School. I really love the challenges art gives me and overcoming them is very rewarding. I always had a passion for drawing because it brings happiness and tranquility in my life. Art has always been my hobby of mine and I would like to pursue it as a profession. I have a great appreciation for art.
