17-year-old Midland artist using talent to reach aspirations

Local News

MIDLAND, TX ( Big 2/ Fox 24) – One Midland High School student finds her way to reach her life goals by using her two hands.

17-year-old, Landess Walker, has always visioned big in her crafted work. She has a passion for art, and she takes her love to get to where she wants to be.

“I remember my first drawing was a bowl of fruit, and I drew the bowl the apple banana, and I colored it all in,” Walker says. “It was so natural because I knew what shading to do.”

Ever since Landess Walker picked up a paintbrush as a child, she began to express artistically how she sees the world.

“I don’t really think it’s a story. It’s more of an issue of how I see the world,” Walker. “This is what I see in beauty. That’s how I view my life.”

Landess family members have seen her talent grew when she was four-years-old.

“We all have talents and to express them and actually do them sometimes we have the talent within us that we suppress and don’t do it because we do other things,” Wilmer Ray Walker, Landess grandfather. “But art itself is important to think about a world without art without somebody who can draw what God has created. I mean a world without art would be kind of bland, don’t you think?”

Through painting, Landess can communicate to others, and Landess hopes her talent will take her to where she wants to be.

“To pay for my college education, and it’s also something that I want to pursue and my future and become like a big artist and just be an inspiration to a lot of people.”
