Emma Banks is a 21st century 15 yr. old who believes she should have been born in the sixties. This is quite evident by the fact that she carries around a 60’s style cat basket, listens to music via record player, and writes her poetry first drafts with a typewriter. She currently attends Appomattox Regional Governor’s School for the Arts and Technology, where she is a Literary Arts major.
Artist’s Statement: The work I produce is dedicated to the incredibly fragile state of interaction between our species and the natural world. My pieces, “Simplicity” and “Requiem” demonstrate just a few of such interactions.
