Portrait & Art
2020 Current Project: Self Portraiture
For me, self-portraiture is extremely hard. Not only do I have to try and get myself in focus and have good posture, but being in front of a camera, even my camera, is intimidating. Just looking straight into the lens can be frightening! I've always been the type of woman to take a photograph, not be in the photograph, but I am also the type to face my anxiety, to face my fear. That's what practicing art is all about - to do the things that make me uncomfortable and to see how the outcome becomes the reward. Once that image is made, being able to face it and to create it is amazing. What's the point of practicing art if you can't use yourself? This is what I love: the sun and it's natural light, the trees, the warmth, and my bare feet on the ground.
