A Portrait of Passion
“Most of the beauty I am able to produce
comes simply from passion and much practice.”
~ Amelia Miholca
In 1999, Amelia came to the United States from Romania with her family. While she has always loved the concept of fashion and art, it was her new American life that sparked within her a passion to develop her fascination. She doodled her textile illustrations all over school papers, getting so lost inside of her own imagination that not even a teacher’s reprimands could detour her newly found abilities. Gradually, her fashion sketches evolved toward a deeper interest into portraits.
She is enticed by the challenge of capturing unique emotions while still involving the subject’s facial structure. In this way, she can use her vivid artistry and drop in a touch of reality to allow the audience a different perspective inside of her objective mindset. One of Amelia’s favorite mediums for telling a story is color. “In all of my art I try to convey the beauty of my subject through numerous colors, because color sparks an interest within.”
Amelia is a talented and skilled artist who knows exactly what she wants from art and expresses it specifically. She acts as if it’s her best friend; it helps express her feelings and inner thoughts in abstract ways. With it, she demonstrates free-form elements of her own vibrancy in each piece, whether photographs or paintings.
Everyone has a special method of expressing thoughts and feelings. Some people write in diaries, play music or participate in sports. Concentrating and practicing something you truly have a passion for helps in so many ways and can even help to build your future. I’m certain that Amelia's next few years at Otis College of Art and Design in California will pave her way to greatness.
