Aaron Townsend

My name is Aaron, and I’ve lived in the Bay Area all my life except for the past few years which I spent in Manhattan, New York. I’ve been an artist all my life, and look forward to creating for the rest of my life. The reason I chose Ex’pression over other schools is the atmosphere of creativity and practicality. Seeing student work around the school inspires my creativity. The hands-on lab and lectures add to my practical experience. Seeing all the obscure beauty that nature has to offer continually inspires my creativity. The organic art of nature is my favorite since it is always changing. My biggest influence is this planet itself. I love going on hikes in parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone. The face of this earth changes all the time and its interesting to see the ever fluctuating art of nature itself. I see myself working on the next big Pixar movie in 10 years. I love using After Effects and Light Room to do motion graphics work and photo enhancing. I look forward to creating 3d art in the near future.
