Georgia Bertalotto, Napa high junior, track athlete and artist. Bertalotto is an art student who enjoys painting flowers, creatures, and the abstract. “Looking at all the beautiful things around me always gives me a feeling of wonder, and I wanted to try and recreate it so I could always look at it, as well as it is one of the easiest ways to express myself.”

She prefers to primarily work with watercolor paints and colored pencils, but will work with other mediums. She started drawing when she was very young, and started with sketching flowers and things that she would see around her house.

“My favorite thing to draw is flowers and plants around me, or create my own. I love all the colors and shapes found in plants that I can’t find anywhere else.”

She has entered her work into student art shows, and is proud of the work that she submits, though she always feels like she can do better. She loves the abstract, strange and supernatural. “People keep suggesting that I should sell my art, but I’d never considered doing so.”

She often expresses herself through her art, drawing what she thinks represents her in its purest form. She loves sketching whatever first arrives in her mind when she is experiencing stress, and it helps her to calm down. “When I draw, I space out, and when I space out I can calm down because it’s like there’s nothing else that exists except me and my art.”

“My art is what helps me to be calm and in the moment when I feel lost and out of control. It’s my anchor.”

Art helps to keep her from panicking in times of stress, and when she needs to focus and she can’t, as well as when she wants to pass the time. Her art uses many different styles, from standard brush strokes, which can make beautiful scenes, to faded watercolor for flowers and pasted images on a painted background for abstract ideas, all of which make up the unique art style that is Georgia Bertalotto’s artwork.
