Imagine having a someone steal one of your favorite things. You are so frustrated that someone could do this. This happened to Cameron Reimers ‘22. Who, you ask is this evil criminal? Her little sisters! And what did they steal? Her colored pencils! Colored pencils are one of Reimers favorite things, because she is a passionate artist.

Reimers has been drawing ever since she was little and has always been very talented. “Her siblings look up to her and her talent” Mrs. Reimers says, “Cameron showed early signs of being interested in art. She was always coloring, painting, sculpting and designing things.” 

Reimers uses art and drawing as a way to clear her mind. While drawing Reimers thinks about everyday things that happened and she tries to reassure herself on tests and on everything. “As I’m drawing I’m just like kind of reassuring myself that it’s fine,” Reimers said. “You know you’re just drawing, it’s okay. Everything is going to be fine. I’m just kind of clearing my head.”

One of Reimers favorite things to draw is cartoon characters. “I like to draw things exactly how they are. And it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I see that my drawing looks exactly like the picture,” Reimers said.

Some of her favorite characters to draw are Rapunzel and the little green chameleon from the movie “Tangled.” Reimers likes to draw, “just random characters that I think have a lot of cool colors and that I think would be fun to have on paper,” she said. Reimers also likes to draw realistic things. “My favorite part of the face to draw is the eyes because it’s kind of a little bit more customizable than the other ones, like color and stuff like that. It’s just really complex and fun to color,” Reimers said.

Besides drawing, Reimers likes to sculpt and paint. She gets to do other types of art in her art class after school on Thursdays. She goes to art class with her friend Elli Genkinger ‘21. “Even though I mostly do drawing, I like to do all the other stuff too. Me and my friend go to an art class. We’ve got all sorts of exposure. Some of my favorite things we have done there [are] acrylic paint color,” Reimers said.

Reimers says the only thing that she doesn’t like is watercolor. Watercolor isn’t her cup of tea because she likes to be in control of what she is doing and she feels like she doesn’t have control with watercolor.

“It’s hard to pinpoint inspiration because I don’t even know where it comes from. It’s just kind of always really been there. It’s kind of subjective to me and it is hard to know exactly where my inspiration comes from because it’s just there.””

Reimers doesn’t give herself enough credit when it comes to art her friend Elli Genkinger ‘21 says, “Cam is super good at replicating painting or drawing straight from pictures, but she criticizes herself so much even though they aren’t bad at all.”

Reimers wants to turn her artistic talents into a career. Reimers likes that she would be able to express herself without being right or wrong. “The field I’d want to work in with art would be more realistic stuff. So more for an academic purpose. I’m not huge into comics and animation, so I’d probably do something with diagrams or drawing actual things that students can use to reference,” Reimers said.

Reimers talks about where her inspiration comes from. “It’s hard to pinpoint inspiration because I don’t even know where it comes from. It’s just kind of always really been there. It’s kind of subjective to me and it is hard to know exactly where my inspiration comes from because it’s just there.”
