This is my real artist statement

While my artwork may seem impersonal, rational and scientific on the surface, in truth, my paintings are entirely personal and emotionally driven. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for many years, and use the process of depicting these intricately detailed galaxies and nebulae to continually remind myself that the universe will always be greater than my problems seem to be- that I am only a cog within the myriad of systems within systems that encompass our bodies, our planet, our solar system, our galaxy and our universe. If nothing I do or feel truly matters in the grand scope of things, why worry about it? I am prone to using escapism as a coping method, and disappearing into the soft hazy beautiful light of a nebula is the furthest escape I can possibly imagine.
I strive for accuracy because the process I take in creating my work reminds me that every dot I place on my canvas has a greater significance than I do- in a galaxy, each dot is a star, most of them bigger than our own sun, with its own system of planets and possible life forms. In my city light paintings, each dot is a city where millions were born, lived and died- each dot is and has been beloved to someone, somewhere, who has no idea I exist and will never care.

ON SET AT 'DEAR JOHN'

OHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGOD. I CANNOT BEGIN TO EXPLAIN JUST HOW EXCITING THIS DAY HAS BEEN.

I WILL CUT TO THE MOST EXCITING NEWS BEFORE I TELL YOU THE BORING PARTS: I HAVE TWO SCENES SITTING NEXT TO AMANDA SEYFRIED [KAREN FROM MEAN GIRLS, THAT ONE MAMMA MIA CHICK ETC] AND I HAD A FUCKING ONE-ONE CONVERSATION WITH HER. SEVERAL. THIS IS DUE TO US SITTING SIDE BY SIDE IN A CRAMPED AUDITORIUM FOR TWO HOURS. HOLY SHIT.

Anyway, Dear John looks like a terrible movie. It's one of those romantic dramas.
PLEASE go see it. I'm the short brown girl with purple hair and a black shirt! I'm the only purple haired person on set! Look out for me!!

ICONS POST

I've made a few icons for myself lately, so I figured I'd post them here as a hub in case I end up losing them/someone wants them/etc. I'll update this whenever I make more, probably.

Feel free to take them, as long as you credit me [limberwolf duh].
