Humans of Eureka | Emma Agoncillo

“My parents got divorced when I was really young. I was kind of weird with coping with it. I guess I was just trying whatever I could think of, and doing things that sparked joy. So that’s what I started doing. I love doing portraits, especially when I was little. Now, I focus more on abstract art. When I was little, I can remember specifically using markers or just pencil on paper and that’s all I did. I’ve expanded so much because of taking art classes. Now I can do acrylic paint, oil paint, watercolors and colored pencils. There’s so many different elements with each one. Art has always been a good distraction. I remember a lot of times during freshman year, I had a little book that I’d doodle in and I’d still be able to listen to what the teacher was saying it’s something that can take all of my stresses and put them aside.” — Emma Agoncillo, sophomore
