Making her mark
At 14 years of age, Darynn Bednarczyk already knows that art is more than just being technically proficient—it is about generating feelings.
Bednarczyk, whose main medium is pencil on paper, said that she prefers drawing animals because she grew up with them. Even though much of the commissioned work she does is through photographs, her knowledge of how animals behave allows her to put more into her drawings than just a representation of the subject.
“I really put a lot of effort into my commissions,” said Bednarczyk. “If I can duplicate the animal’s personality, I’m very happy.”
In the future, she hopes to get into the field of animation or graphic design.
