When we're younger we're all given the motivation to dream to be anything in the world. We think of things like a doctor, astronaut, veterinarian or movie star. We are told we can be whatever we want to be if we just put our minds to it. For Micayla Gatto, being one thing wasn't ever enough. She wanted to be an athlete, but she was coming into her own as a talented artist. Melding the two has become her passion, and finding the intersection of art and sport has become a lifestyle. Last year we were given the opportunity to create a story surrounding Micayla's talents. We dreamt of alpine descents at sunrise and golden-hued sunset. Our little dream became a crazy reality when we added in the notion to animate Micayla into her artwork and get really creative with color. The result is Intersection.
Breaking the mold has become the latest talent of Micayla's. We hope you enjoy Intersection as much as we enjoyed its creation.
