Artist Bio 2011
From my youth I had a love for movement, emotion, and music. Dance was in my soul in the most tremendous way and at twenty years old it was ripped out of my life with the most tragic force. I became lost in myself. I didn’t know where to start again. I have always loved all forms of art: drawing, painting, music, etc., which is how I got through the loss of dancing. I have a hard time with words but I have been able to continue expressing myself through other forms of art. At Texas State University, by chance, I took Intro to Photography with Eric Weller. Within four months I started to feel passionate about something again. I have not considered myself solely as a Photographer; I have too much inside to only use my eyes for art. I feel fortunate to have been able to experience so many types of artistic expression, explore element that I didn’t know existed or I didn’t think I could do. I have experienced fiber work, performance art, painting, drawing, mixed media and best of all history. These and many more have shaped me as an artist and now I am working to find a direction, or more specifically a purpose for my work. Most of the time I feel that my work is mostly done subconsciously and I discover what I am trying to express as I go. It's as if my mind doesn’t want to let it out but my soul has to.
