My name is Alexis Franklin and I am soon to be a graduate of the University of Southern Maine with a BFA in Art Education, concentrating in painting and drawing.
I moved to Maine years ago from the the state of Kansas. Maine and Kansas are very different environmentally. My surroundings changed from flat and dry to humidity, oceans, and mountains. Living in a rural area helped me discover how to have fun using my imagination. There in Kansas is where I began my interest in the arts. Moving to Maine then only helped me take my interest in the arts even futher. Being someone who has lived in many different places, I have grown to be a very open-minded person.
Other joys of mine are traveling and visiting museums. I frequently take weekend trips to visit new art exhibits. I have visited France multiple times as well and I loved it. There is so much to learn about and see in this world, even in southern maine, and that's why I want to be an educator.
