I am an autistic starving artist living in Canada's capital. My father is a professional artist, so ever since I was old enough to grasp a writing utensil, I apprenticed under him, both of us sharing the same impairments and gifts. Though my father and I no longer speak, his lessons echo in my subconscious. Art is still my refuge.
I focus on fine detail and the human form. These days, my doctor has me heavily medicated and this interferes with my art in terms of concentration, precision, imagination. But I'm always working on my craft, trying to express myself though the blank page.
I am feminist activist. Equal rights is my goal, toplessness is my battlecry! I am also a nude model. (SG suicidegirls.com/members/Alvyn…
Frida Khalo is one of my biggest heroes and artistic inspirations.
"I paint self-portraits because I am the person I know best. I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other considerations." - Frida Kahlo
"I am not sick. I am broken. But I am happy as long as I can paint." - Frida Kahlo
"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim." - Frida Kahlo
"Well-behaved women seldom make history." - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
My boyfriend of four years has finally joined the site to share his many beautiful photos of myself, concerts and whatever catches his artistic eye. Please welcum my Captain, photographer and love, Bobhed! I'm sure you'll love him as much as I bobhed.deviantart.com/
