Part four….Perspective

Perspective IS……..

 I am trying to say it up in one sentence, but I can’t.

I don’t want to.

 It’s more of a feeling for me.

It’s an angel. Like tilting your head, this way or that.

It’s how I decide to look at something.



All the time.

Sometimes I look at it upside down.

Sometimes, sideways.

Sometimes straight in the eyes.

It is something that can not be pinned down.

One person’s perspective is another person’s mistake.

Someone who holds a camera up to their eye and decides to shoot “upside down” may not get the same effect.

You can’t just do it for “upside down” sake.

 You have to SEE it, know it, it should give you tingles.  Seeing something in Perspective is overwhelming every time.

There is an excitement that comes out of thin air.

Something MAKES you HAVE to “click” or draw, or write or…..what ever you HAVE to do.

  It can’t be “mocked” it can’t be copied.  It has to come from the bones.

Perspective is a personal adventure.

It is a journey made alone.

It is as deep as the abyss of the soul.  You can’t fake it.  You can’t make it up.  It has to come from YOU.

I sometimes get discouraged out there in the land of ART because there are SO MANY TALENTED people.

The world is full of them.

Why does it matter what I do?  I say to myself on hard days.

Well, it matters because my PERSPECTIVE matters.

 I am the ONLY person sitting HERE  in this space in THIS universe SEEING what I SEE. 

THAT’S PERSPECTIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
