Sharon Duque's Work:

When I was a high school student in Northern California taking AP Art Studio, my art teacher, while discussing Cubism with me, said, "It's scary how much you don't know about art." I've been trying to remedy that ever since! I took my first art history class from Brother Raish at BYU, and I've been studying art history and visiting art museums throughout Europe and the U.S. ever since.
