Taylor: How long have you been an artist?

 

Dustin: I have always had an interest in arts and creativity behind it. Even when I was a kid, I always had a passion for painting. For every birthday, or Christmas or anything like that, I would always ask for new painting supplies.

Taylor: How long have you been an artist?

Dustin: I have always had an interest in arts and creativity behind it. Even when I was a kid, I always had a passion for painting. For every birthday, or Christmas or anything like that, I would always ask for new painting supplies.

T: What inspires you to paint your amazing artwork?

D: My artwork allows me to express my feelings and emotions, and just lets me express myself. Painting is a big stress reliever for me. It helps me work out my problems.

Lexi: Are you doing any other hobbies besides painting?

Dustin: I used to play basketball all the time, but I recently had spine surgery, which has been a major set back for me. Hopefully I will be back to normal, and can start playing again soon

Lexi: How would you describe Dustin’s artwork?

Andy Salame(senior): Dustin’s artwork has very unique aspects to it. He always uses paint splatters, or bright colors. It’s like his signature.

Taylor: Being his girlfriend, what do you admire most about him?

Cara Bacon: Well, the fact that he has a cow lung, , has had 2 back surgeries, and has IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease), but still functions normal and overcomes any problem that comes his way, really just shows how much of a strong person he is. I am so proud of the person he has become.

Dustin has a lot of interesting qualities. He has played just about every sport. Before hurt his back, he was ranked top 10 in the nation as a quarterback. He has over came many obstacles but still continues to play basketball whenever he gets the chance. The fact that he just started becoming a painter and is already selling his artwork for thousands, shows how talented he really is. He plans to go to Georgia Highlands and continue to do great things in the classroom. Dustin’s love for ketchup is a love we all wish we could have. He shows nothing but positivity and lets none of his issues from the past affect him today.
