I am an artist who chooses to express herself differently every day.
This is a small collection of the things I wake up and decide to do.
things i've made
Over Summer 2017, I had to have bone corrective surgery on both of my feet.
Being bed ridden for months was incredibly boring.
So I made this bookshelf.
I was in the market for the ~perfect~ over sized chunky knit scarf.
They were all $90+ so I watched an 8 minute YouTube video and taught myself how to make them instead.
Now I sell them for $100.
an experiment i did.
I couldn't really tell you what was going on in my head when I woke up this morning.
But something deep down in me wanted to drag around 2 huge mirrors all over the river.
It was seriously a PAIN in the ASS.
Oh trust, I thought about giving up several times.
I might have even cried once.
But, I'm no quitter.
I kept dragging these 2 mirrors all over the rocks and water like a mad woman.
I did have a little bit of help, but dogs aren't very helpful.
Maybe it's something about out of place nature?
it's about the contrast of the hard square edge competing with the organic trees?
To this day, I'm still not sure why I did it or what it means.
But, I did the damn thing and here you are looking at it.
For class, we had to do 54 projects about Haagen-Dazs. This was number 48.
This was also one of the 54 projects about Haagen-Dazs.
It snowed and I lugged all my camera gear out into the woods for this.
Behind the scenes: jumping back and forth repeatedly using self timer.
This is a colleague from art school, Ashley.
We collaborated and I took photos of her performance piece.
Yes, she's in a swamp. SWAMP.
Like allllllll the way in there.
So far in there.
This is my friend, Cathie.
She let me take photos of her topless in the woods.
And in the dirt.
And in the trees.
This photo was shown in Studio 8 West for Richmond's First Friday's Art Walk.
Sometimes it be like that.
Some picture from high school that won some award so it's still special, right?
For class, we had to make a video using the quote, "The last few years have been leading up to something." This is a video about the struggles with addiction to self harm. Overcoming the daily triggers in regular life routines.
This is a random video that's sort of about my love for Richmond, but more about my love for this song.
Here's another piece that was part of "Project 54: Haagen-Dazs." My colleague, Ezra and I decided to set a timer for 30 minutes and paint a portrait of each other. We did a lot of weird stuff for Project 54, this isn't one of them.
regular art type stuff.
My first ever attempt at oil painting, stretching my own canvas, and framing.
A self portrait with acrylic paint.
Carved into a linoleum block and printed onto fancy rice paper.
Charcoal erasure study.
