Inside the Artist’s Sketchbook: Annika Ostrom ’20

This feature was conceived as a foray into the hearts/minds of Kenyon’s finest artists through the pages of their sketchbooks. This week, we talk with Annika Ostrom ’20. 

Annika Ostrom may be new to the Kenyon art scene, but she’s far from inexperienced. She declared a major in Studio Art in December of last semester, and is currently experimenting in different mediums through art classes at Kenyon.

She says she doesn’t necessarily have a favorite medium and at this point is more interested in trying out different techniques rather than settling into a signature style just yet. She bought her current sketchbook during a trip to California with her high school art program, and it’s filled with images depicting her travels to Los Angeles, Paris, and her time so far at Kenyon.

The intersection of art and technology has always interested Annika, and is an area she hopes to revisit in the future. In high school as in independent study project, she created a robot that could draw a portrait of her. When the assignments for classes she’s taking start to be more open-ended, she says it’s an area she’d definitely like to revisit.
