At the age of 11 Months, I suffered a stroke. Many side affects such as: Blindness, Epilepsy, and Suicidal Depression fallowed this event. These effects were not discovered until I was 12 so my childhood is a bit blurry. I remember it being full of confusion, bitterness and loneliness as I struggled to find where I belonged.
My journey to becoming a member of the art world began in my first year in high school, when my Art teacher informed me that my work was horrible and that I would never be an artist. The journey takes a happier turn however when I joined the school theater 1 year later. Acting gave me a fresh view of the world and completely cured my shyness. Acting was the only ART involvement I had for years until a friend encouraged me to continue with Graphic Works when she saw me fiddling around with Photoshop one day. My imagination soared after that day and I have been doing Digital works ever since. I attended 1 year of College for New Media Communications and Design, but was given the same attitude by my professors and class mates that my High School Teacher did. "You will never be an Artist." I will always remember the words of a particular college class mate... "Only when your dead will people realize that you were a good artist."
I have been just doing my own thing ever since then. I consider myself a Digital creative Artist with my own unique style. Having vision loss does make it hard for me to interpret the world and the world will always look different through my eyes. Therefore my art is going to look a bit different then most as well.
I very much love sharing my work with others, no matter what their opinion may be and I hope that one day other will see what I do.
