“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
If you could go back and tell your younger self one thing, what would it be? For me it would be, "Don’t let the fear of failure and the fear of looking like an idiot prevent you from doing what you want to do and don't expect success overnight. Get lost, get so lost and find yourself over and over again. Don't stop until you make yourself proud. You are a highly sensitive person. Don’t run from it, embrace that shit.” well something like that. Wrightwood Studios was an idea I had when I was 18. I was studying multimedia design in Chicago and then life happened and the running began. It's funny how life works though, 15 years later Wrightwood Studios is now a reality. Thanks to my sister for lighting that fire again. Wrightwood Studios comprised of my sister Madelyn Dorta, my brother Angel Dorta and myself. Art has always been a passion for me. It's hard for me to stick with just one medium when everything fascinates me that’s why Wrightwood Studios will be a multimedia company that will do a little bit of everything.
