The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is pleased to showcase the art work of artist, Serenity Haskett.

Serenity Haskett has been drawn to art and its many forms from a young age.

“When I was younger, my school held art contests. I usually got 2nd or 3rd place but I wanted to get better.” Serenity explains. “I stopped all together for a while but then the movie ‘Frozen’ came to theaters. I drew Elsa and it looked just like how it was supposed to. One Christmas, my family got me some paints and that’s where I found my love for floral and galaxy designs.”

This fall, Serenity, will be a senior at Newton Community High School.

Serenity shares: “In every painting, drawing, or even strange creations, there is a different meaning behind every single one of them for everyone.”

Serenity Haskett’s artwork will be displayed in the Art Gallery until August 7, 2020
