All artists have muses and I being a makeup artist am no exception. There are many things that inspire me as an artist. The lines of a building, the color of the sky at sunset, animals, movies, home decor, whatever the photographer tells me to do, whatever the stylist tells me to do :P and most often other artists.
Meet my muse of the week fellow blogger, expat and photographer Felicia Shelton of This Time Now Blog.
Felicia is an English teacher and soon to be full time photographer from Virginia but currently living in S. Korea. We met almost a year ago through my blog Italian Odyssey. At the time I was writing about my preparation for my move to Italy and all the ups and downs it entailed.
My fellow Aries and I hit it off over our love of our afros, Europe, travel, fashion, and home decor. At the time she was a burgeoning photographer in her own right but had yet to make the leap to full time no-hold-barred status. Since arriving in Italy, our lives have taken flight and at times she is the kick in the ass that I need when I feel like giving up on my dream.
Since we have met and hot off the trails of her recent visit to the Maison et Objet International Exhibit in Paris, she has decided to throw herself into her art and heart, which is photographing beautiful objects, interiors and buildings. Below is a transcript of an interview that I did with her. Be inspired by this glamazonian (she is 6' tall) bubbly, optimistic, and force of nature that is Felicia Shelton.
