So. What do I do and what do I want to do? I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m creating. I dabble in a little bit of everything. You will see illustrations, photography, crafting, writing, and whatever else I happen to pick up. There is going to be various degrees of nudity, blood, surrealism, and general weirdness. There will also be cute animal content because why the hell not?
Ideally, I would like to be able to convey a story with my work. A sense of connection and mood to each piece. I know that won’t necessarily be the case every single time but that will be my general goal. I want to show the beauty in what is uncomfortable. Toeing the line between pretty and creepy. Something that makes the onlooker feel a slight unnerved but not be able to look away. Both soothing and a little unsettling.
I am also always drawn to the slightly imperfect pictures. I enjoy the flow of an image more than the technicality. So. You’ll see photos that are slightly blurred. You’ll see images that don’t make anatomical sense. You’ll see lighting mistakes. You’ll see imperfections. Lots of them. And though I will continuously learn to be and do better I’m also allowing myself to continually enjoy what happens naturally.
When there was nothing else and no one else, my own creativity was what got me through. Luckily, I've come to a point in my life that I am able to understand my inner struggles more, embrace my flaws, and still be able to work on improving myself. My travels have taken my up and down the west coast and now I've ventured across the country to the East Coast, hopefully overseas will be in my future.
If I learned one thing in college, it is that every piece of artwork has a part of the person(s) involved, whether it is purposeful or even known.
