La Quinta Arts Foundation scholarship recipient Micah Ramos studies visual arts at California State University of San Marcos. Majoring in art and technology, she has developed a passion for animation and graphic design.

“Growing up, one of the main influences that impacted me were animated films for children. Animated films taught me about nature, opened my eyes to vibrant colors, and helped me understand the importance of family. This love for animation made me into the person I am today and shaped my love for art.”

In addition to digital arts, Ramos enjoys working in mediums such as drawing, illustration, painting, photography, and sculpture.
