Purvis Young: A Contemporary Urban Artist
Florida is known as a place for artistic expression. The buoyant nature has inspired a magnificent variety of artists from all walks of life, creating works depicting both Florida landscape and lifestyle.
Accountability Has a Cost
I took quite the break. I'm not sure what else to say, other than I just couldn't find the inspiration to love myself. Writing comes easy to me, it always has. What has become increasingly difficult for me lately is this feeling that I really don't have anything to say. Nothing of great value at least. Sure I can fill a void, add space, words, and diction, but I feel as though I am just talking out of my own ass? Imposter syndrome creeps in, and it's this endless loop of sadistic shit that seems unstoppable. You wouldn't believe what I can say - about me. Maybe you do though, because I know I am not the only one suffering from mental illness, and the lack of accountability from parental figures, which turned into an overcompensation of consequences.
“She composes her own poem with the elements of the poem before her. She participates in the performance by refashioning it in her own way…[she is an] active [interpreter] of the spectacle offered to [her].” – Ranciere
“I looked at her, amazed. Parts of the film had remained, had stuck, in her memory… I thought: But what more do I want?”
Art is Life
I love my job because of the smile that comes across a person’s face when they see the work of art I have created. Whether they bought one of my needlepoint canvas designs, a button, a sticker, a painting, a photograph, or a resin creation, the look of joy and happiness makes it all worth it to me. It could even be someone reading one of my stories and poems and enjoying the read. I might not get paid to write them, but I even consider writing my fanfiction stories as part of my job because I can make people smile as they read what I have created.
A Day in the Life of a Theatre Practitioner
I love my job because it allows me to enter worlds I never thought were possible. As a theatre practitioner, I get the opportunity to take a step out of the hustle and bustle of the world and allow myself to immerse in the most extraordinary of worlds. Let me walk you through the joys that have made leaving the arts sector impossible, no matter the challenges that face me on the road ahead.
Lost in an Empty Sea
As a struggling writer and animator I find it hard to enjoy the little things in life. Having next to no money trying to cut a little piece into this world where I can share my work and make a profit on it seems to be getting harder and harder everyday. It feels like on the daily that nobody has time for the regular artist just trying to produce his style or brand of content. Getting seen and getting heard is the struggle for creators combating other creators for slices of pie.

In and out
In and out. In and out. In and out. Does that sound like something you’d hear from a soothingly-voiced instructor in a meditation class? It sure seems like it to me, but it’s actually my rendition of the embroidery process.
I remember feeling confused as a child when noticing the way people felt, versus how they behaved. It was rare that the two actually reflected one another. For me, it was more like if you expressed a feeling--any feeling--there would likely be hell to pay. If you were cowering in fear, small and quiet, you were safer, but not immune. I’m not trying to convince anyone of how bad it was because I lived it, and even I struggle with fully accepting it. Though some may be able to relate, no one else knows what it felt like being in my body. Seeing what I saw, feeling what I felt, hearing what I heard, living how I lived. Cause that's the thing, life is an experience that is different for every person, even if multiple people share the same exact circumstance. If I have pulled you into this truthful tale, then I have successfully shared my creative outlet with you. I’m a storyteller, and while I do enjoy writing of all sorts, I am a poet at heart.
