About Me

It is usually never a surprise to find Roa’s hands marked by pencils, pens, markers, and paints after an intense writing or drawing session. Ever since she was a child, Roa has
known she wanted to convey stories through written works and connected forms. While storytelling was something that came naturally to her, Roa had to experiment with a
bunch of mediums to cultivate her own art style and—ultimately—teach herself how to draw. Inspired by books, anime, and a multicultural environment, Roa has mastered critical thinking and traditional
art (and a slight obsession over characters and pretty things). She hopes to publish her own books, as time passes, and to open up her own studio (or at least get her own TV series off of the ground). Roa has recently gotten into digital art, and though it drives her crazy in its lack of physicality, she hopes to improve in the medium as time passes by. She also hopes to gain more technical skills in softwares that aren't Photoshop, though she has an obnoxious preference for the program. Another thing she hopes to gain is work experience, as she progresses in her digital career and can hopefully produce competent content.

Featured Projects


Glassure

Glassure

This particular piece was done in art class, on gray-toned paper, and with compressed charcoal. I later cropped and filtered the piece in Photoshop, to make it look a little watery. Nevertheless, this piece played with Gothic architecture and played with an abstractness that rooted from my ongoing art hiatus.

Puppet

Puppet

This piece was originally done in PrismacoIors, and was the first time I truly utilized them. Nevertheless, I played with the piece in Photoshop, in the end, to create a geometric and abstract look. This piece is more about the pose, which is supposed to mimic that of a marionette.

Moonlit Miseries

Moonlit Miseries

This piece was originally a zentangle done in permanent marker. I later played with the piece, in Photoshop, to revamp the look and experiment with the suturing of traditional and digital art. The scene is supposed to depict motifs of the European and Salem witch trials, in a hectic sense.

Have you ever wanted to be in your own blockbuster film with special effects? The Greenscreen Experience can get you close: step in front of the green screen, where you and your friends act together in a short clip. Bradley students will then work to edit your footage, placing you in a variety of fantastical situations: hiding from dinosaurs, wielding some fire, dancing in space, and more! Select from a variety of fun props, act out your scene, and leave the rest of production to the students. Videos will be sent out via email.
