i’m not a photographer, and i certainly don’t consider this art photography. but i am a personal artist, and there come times when personal revelations and changes made in my daily life are relevant to my art and myself as an artist in a way that i feel merits at least a note.
i’ve been through a lot lately. i’ve been dealing with a lot of life changes and making a lot of difficult decisions. and somehow, in the midst of all this, my brain decided it was time to start thinking really hard about all the personal things i hadn’t addressed thus far.
i recently came out to a select group of people - namely my inner circle and my safe, supportive online community - as nonbinary. it’s something that will affect my art the way my queerness does now and my womanhood did when it was all i knew. and shaving my head - something that might seem like a petty appearance change to some - is an important exploration of queerness and gender that i believe will end up being more than relevant to my future work.
the artist is not that easily extricated from their work - i’m excited to bring you guys more fine art in the coming months alongside my illustration, and i’m excited to see how the changes happening in my personal life will manifest in my work.
here’s to change, and to self-discovery, and to making things out of it.
