Beginning her career as an artist in 9th grade, Eden Jablon has developed a unique portfolio in her four years at Milken.

Her most recent piece, a colored pencil drawing of a bright jelly fish, displays Jablon’s mastery of color and composition.

Although her collection of pieces is quite impressive, Jablon claims, “After a while I look back at pieces and just see a million ways to make them better.”

Jablon has made significant progress since she began the AP art studio course and says, “I love that we’ve experimented with different mediums. We also have the freedom to do what we want, with materials and guidance provided.”

In regards to turning in her AP portfolio, Jablon notes, “The idea of people grading art seems weird to me, especially considering that art can be so abstract: ‘white on white’ is in a museum somewhere.”

Jablon does not plan on pursuing a career in art but wants to continue developing her passion and says, “I will never stop doodling.” Let’s hope she doesn’t! Congratulations to Eden on a wonderful spotlight display.
