Denis graduated from Walt Whitman in 2018. She took AP Drawing and Painting her senior year, which is where her collection of Animal Classics comes from. Her collection takes classic pieces of art from different time periods and changes the subject with animals of her choice. Pieces in her collection include Creation of Aardvark, Swan Lake, Vincent Van Go Fish and many others. Denis says her inspiration comes in phases, fading in and out. She says, "Freshman year I would draw like crazy... Junior year I was forced to do works I didn't want to do and the stress of my AP Art Concentration took it all out of me. That said, its completion made me so proud." She says drawing is more of a job for her than a hobby. She enjoys all of her pieces. They all have their own characters and strong suits.
