I had the opportunity to meet Emily Hernandez on Thursday morning at the Art Gallery in Cal State Long Beach.  Emily is currently 22 years of age and is from Orange County. Her favorite color is yellow. She is an interactive at student who is inspired by humans, color, and human space. Her mother is from California but her dad is from Mexico. She did not learn how to speak Spanish because her father thought it would confuse her.  She has an older sister who lives in Japan and she has traveled to many places that include Japan, Europe, France, and Mexico. She focuses on ceramics and portraits. Her goal is to paint for the rest of her life while being an art teacher for either middle or high school students and being part of art shows.
