Rochelle Ortiz, HAWAII Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement Hello My name is Rochelle Ortiz and this is my character Teardrop. Teardrop was created about 20 yrs. ago when I fell in love with a boy named Byron Seto. He is one of my good friends. I kept my feelings for him hidden in a sketchbook diary filled with art and poetry confessing my love. After 5 yrs. I finally gave him the book. Teardrop to me represents DEPTH. Now, I would like to share it with you. Enjoy.
