Erin's Art-multimedia and photography
*Copyright 2011 Please do not use my work without permission
I am not sure when my love for art started. I know that I still admire my mother's artwork, and even though I have hit a roadblock in my own artistic work, I still love to sketch and paint. I also know that I began to enjoy multimedia freshmen year of high school. I actually had fun in art class when I was in middle school, but maybe I didn't feel like a strong enough artist or think that I could accomplish much more (I had extremely little confidence in myself). Then after my multimedia class, I decided to take drawing. This was a big turning point in my life, as I was battling depression and it seemed the only thing that kept me sane was art and writing. I did so...much of this throughout my high school years. My art teacher in drawing brought out my confidence, and even though I knew I wasn't her best student, I knew that I could at least accomplish something. After high school I attended college majoring in art, but school was not my focus at that time (although it should have been), so I only made it half a year. I was also having second thoughts about my career. It honestly seemed foolish for me to pay so much money to learn something that probably wouldn't pay back. Maybe someday my hobby will come to more, but right now I am happy with what it is.
There are many art sets to choose from...
Black and White Photography
I also took photography in high school which although I loved it, I didn't succeed very well. This class was for 35mm black and white, and my camera was broken. For quite awhile I would fail horribly with awful overexposed, blurry pictures before my teacher noticed it. What could I do? I was lucky to have gotten any camera at all, we didn't have loads of cash on hand. Even though they are not wonderful masterpieces, I still think that I made it work fairly well. I really got into tinting the photos to create a more surreal feeling, pulling the good out of the bad.
