Hi everyone! My name is Stephanie, I’m a young aspiring artist and photographer. I got started on photography about 4 years ago after really falling in love with the art. I think capturing moments and freezing them in time as photos is one of the most beautiful things humans are able to do. I love that every person has a different feeling or energy when looking at the same picture. Pictures, and art in general, are meant to speak to the mind and soul and make you feel things you weren’t expecting; I really focus on that when I’m creating. I still have a long way to go with photography, especially once I’m able to get more equipment to help me along with my journey, but I’ve never been more excited to see where it takes me.
As for painting, I’ve been practicing that art since I was a child. I’ve felt discouraged about my painting work for a long time, because precise and detailed drawings aren’t what I’m great at and I’ve thought for a long time that I couldn’t be an artist without possessing that precise hand. But recently, I’ve opened up more to the creative side and have really been working to let things flow more naturally by working on a few different abstract canvas paintings. I’m really enjoying abstract work; turning my mind off and letting my hands take complete control of the process. It’s been exhilarating and I’m excited to see where this new practice will take me.
Thanks for reading and exploring my art page!
