When I was a child and people asked me what I wanted to be, I would always say, "an artist."
I never remember a time I was not in awe of COLOR. Just pure ol' color--
in the form of crayon, colored pencils, Play-Doh, clay,
paints & glitter.
During my teen years, I fell in love with hair color and make-up and often took
matters of this nature into my own hands, to the dismay of my family members.
I was told by my friends I was really good at cutting hair & doing make-up.
I looooved working on a live, human, face.
I thought it was just amazingly beautiful and so rewarding to watch
a transformation take place at my very hand & eye.
Soooooo...Jeremy Scott, Fashion Designer,
I'm in love with the make-up look on your runway this past spring!
These colors? This look?
This is what I feel embodies my aesthetic...What is deep inside of me:
A little bit clown
A little bit edge
A little bit street fashion
A little bit punk...
along with an underlying touch of childhood innocence.
That's me on the inside and I wish, wish, wish,
I could walk around in real life looking like this.
But alas, (sigh...)
I'm just an English teacher
trying to make my way
in this world.
