Hello! My name is Alyssa Ortiz and I am the co-founder of Vivid Arts. I am a seventeen year old Photographer and Graphic Designer here at Santa Susana High School. These two fields of art have given me the opportunity to express myself creatively for the past four years.
Many of you may know me as the girl who would randomly go up to you and ask you if your interested in a photo shoot or interview and here is the reason why: for as long as I can remember, art has been a huge part of my life, whether that was spending hours painting, taking pictures, designing, or making some sort of craft, art has always given me a way to express my creativity.
As soon, as I started high school at Santa Susana I took advantage of our amazing art programs from taking AP studio art with Ms. Cherbak to literally taking all classes possible in Mr. Abbe’s photography and graphic design classes. I am now proud to say, all the endless hours of hard work has led me to graduate with high honors in the academies of visual and graphic arts.
My last step to reaching my goals and passions, is here in this senior project. Through all the conversations and meetings, 101 photo shoots, social media managing, and hours of sitting in front of the computer editing and designing, I was able to share and involve my journey here with you.

Art is not what you see but what you make others see.”
