Sam Raycraft
Untitled Exhibit

"I am a senior at Grants Pass High School. I love doing art so I can see the finished result. I feel like I can create whole worlds and new ideas for the public's curiosity! Being able to show people what's in my mind and the odd things I can come up with, or how I feel with a pen and paint is something I love doing and don't plan on ever quitting." -Sam Raycraft
