Hi, my name is Krista Ortiz and I am a 20-year-old multimedia student here are Lane. I have attended college previously for 2 years and began my studies at Lane in Fall 2018. I am very passionate about music and I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I mainly play bass guitar, but I also play many other instruments. Music in my life has been a defining factor in my personal development.
Another passion of mine is art. Most of my artistic life, I have only experimented with analog art such as painting and drawing. I absolutely love painting with all of my heart. Some other activities that I do is attend music festivals. They are my favorite form of art and music together. After attending shows for over a year, I started to become more curious about the way the art is made. If some people don’t know, festivals mainly use motion graphics that are projected onto a screen. This fascinated me, which led me to get into the multimedia program here at Lane.
The past two years of my life have been about searching and discovering who I am. If someone isn’t comfortable with themselves or their life, then how will they figure out what they want to do? We are always told to do something “practical” and because of that, people like me spend years studying something that doesn’t make them happy. I feel that I have found the right career path for me that has the possibility to involve my two passions: art and music.
