My name is Marcelle and I am a current student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California, who will complete a BFA in Visual Development in May 2021. From a young age, I have been inspired by a variety of media such as video games and movies, an interest that has only grown with time. Growing up with Disney and Pixar movies, and playing games like League of Legends, opened my eyes to how art was more than what was in a museum. In high school, I moved states to attend the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts. There I won several awards and showcased in numerous galleries. I wanted to apply my strong drawing skills in a field that allowed me to take part in the entertainment industry that had inspired me for years. I discovered the major of Visual Development at the Academy. I hope to work within a studio and help develop media to inspire younger generations of artists like how I was.
