Elias Padilla plans on putting down roots in Seattle.
“I’d like to travel, but I’d like to make Seattle a home,” says Elias, originally from Stockton, California. “I like it because there’s a lot of art; creativity around. And there’s not a bunch of prejudice, you know; everyone’s their own person here.”
Art and individuality are important parts of Elias’ life. And although he is a well-rounded creative, Elias has been focusing on poetry writing as of late.
Growing up, Elias wanted to be an architect. He has always enjoyed drawing.
