Living in a big city with my parents and siblings I had a great childhood. After graduating high school, I enrolled in a pre-nursing program. While taking my science courses, I tried out many different art electives, from computer graphics and painting to my passion which is photography. Nothing in my past and present life would have suggested the creation of BloodCrave Photography.
Since nursing was no longer in my future, I transferred schools and started working toward my BA in Photography. When heading out into the field to photograph nature and children on the side, I was assigned an interesting essay. My professor suggested that we all research and write an essay featuring five new photography genres we were unaware of. It really intrigued me to see a few photographers using toys and dolls as their main subjects. I was captivated by how dolls can hold a pose for days, will not run late for a photo-shoot and are cost effective. I had to try photographing dolls.
The dolls turned out to be a real success; I loved what I was doing. In a later class I was brainstorming some ideas for a big projects I had coming up. I had so many happy ideas with positive endings, but when I shared the ideas with my professor he said: “ All of your ideas are good but, I’ve noticed that you make real art when you add blood and death.” From this day forward, I started exploring the darker side of my imagination. He was right.
I do not consider myself a creepy person although my art suggest it to others. I am a fun loving person who enjoys educating children of all abilities. Art is just an extension of my imagination taken to a whole new level and captured in one frame. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I have creating it for you.
