Artist Spotlight: Bella Barrientes

Hi, my name is Bella! I am a first-year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I really enjoy digital art, painting and editing photos. My aesthetic is mostly inspired by anime and the color pink. I got into digital art due to the nature of my physical disability as I’ve always struggled with hand-drawn art. Software like Adobe Illustrator and Procreate have opened doors for me and my creative expression. Not only is making art therapeutic, but I also enjoy sharing it with others through my Instagram @rosyartistry.
