Daniela de Castro Sucre is a world traveler who finds adventure in art.
In 2017, she started the Pensacola State College Art Club. The organization ─ better known as Art Box ─ officially became a club in September 2017. Along with bringing in speakers, Art Box members participate in Gallery Night and host workshops.
“I am lucky to have been encouraged to participate in the arts since a young age, so I consider myself an artist,” said de Castro Sucre who was raised in Venezuela but moved to the United States at age 15.
“My medium of preference is oil painting, but I also enjoy working with a variety of different media. My latest ‘discovery’ has been printmaking, specifically relief printmaking. In 2018’s Honor Students Art Exhibition, one of my printmaking pieces won second place in the Printmaking/Drawing/Painting division.”
de Castro Sucre’s appreciation extends beyond her art to those who made it possible for her to pursue it on a deeper level.
“I truly appreciate the scholarship I was awarded. It is through scholarships like these that students like me are able to study the degree of their choice,” she noted. “Without the extra help, I could have very easily missed out on studying graphic design and not experienced classes like Printmaking, which has become one of my new favorite forms of creating art.”
