Monica Taing – about meThe arts have shaped my nature before I was consciously aware of it. I started piano lessons at age four. At the age of nine, I developed an interest in web-design through my peers in middle school. It was then when I began learning HTML, CSS, and the graphic design program, “GIMP”. I created my first website, “Simply M” in fourth grade, and created a subdomain, “monicagalaxy” shortly after, in 2011. I purchased this domain in 2013.
In high school, I have expressed my interest in the arts through designing layouts for webpages, music, and most recently, drawing and designing pieces for fun. In ninth grade, I created merging, and also created fonts and posters. During sophomore year, I began the process of creating for others – for my school and for other organizations. With every project I completed, I found the process of creating and exploring new things more fascinating. Summer of my senior year provided me time to transform even the most futile ideas into a project.
Currently, I create drawings, illustrations, and explore graphic design software to integrate with my work. I revamped my portfolio and renamed it “monicagalaxy by Monica T.” in August 2017 to include graphics and photography. It is now named “monicagalaxy by Monica Taing”. The development and thought process of creating something is fulfilling, so I plan to create more works throughout the year. I continue to read to learn more about website design and the sciences. I am currently pursuing an undergraduate degree with hopes that it will enable me to explore, innovate, and create exciting projects in the future.
