Scream, bite, pinch and kick your way into this world. A universe beyond for holding the stars and sleeping on Mars. That big smile in the morning. That soft cheek against my own. Finding out my knowledge needs improvement. And your breath always smells like apples.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. The sweet South. I always wanted to be an actress but it was poetry and short stories where I hid out most of the time. At 14 my Ma found my diary and wasn't too happy with it's contents so I learned to write in code, creating a different layer beneath the surface. I moved west to Los Angeles at 19 to pursue acting and by the next year was on my first movie set. It was director Kevin Smith who gave me my first few roles and coincidentally my twins and him have the same birthday. That same year I was gifted with a diary and began to accompany photographs from my everyday life to add something more visual to the writing. After a while it formed into a life of it's own and I then began studying photography seriously. These diary's evolved into a set of mini books which were hand bound and sewn together, signed and numbered. The themes were always different and very personal, as all of my work has been and continues to be. It's mostly been the people I've known and worked with that's influenced me most and contained the lessons within. My art pieces have always been very autobiographical. This blog is a continuation on that theme.
