You can call me Molly Blue, and I am 23 years old. I started taking self-portraits and writing poetry at the age of 14. I've always used my phone's selfie-camera, a self-timer and any object I could find to get the right angle. I used to keep all of the images to myself as I did not feel comfortable or confident enough to share them. I knew a lot of people would judge me for my form of expression as a lot of the pictures were artistic nudes. Many people would struggle to see past the nudity to the emotions being expressed.
Eventually I decided to open an Instagram account where I could share my self-portraits along with my poetry. A lot of people loved my work, however I never thought much of it at all, as I did not think my work was good enough to be recognised in the industry.
As I did not have the equipment I needed to take high-quality photos, I started working with photographers who were willing to collaborate with me for free to build up my portfolio. I gained a lot of self-confidence and decided that it was time to start turning my passion into a full-time job. I’ve never signed with any agencies, as I did not want to limit myself to what I can do and who I can work with, therefore most of my shoots were always for free.
After sitting down and thinking about it for a while, I came to the conclusion that I want to sell canvas prints of my work. It is authentic, timeless and creates a personal connection between people.
My biggest goal with my work is to capture my emotions and hopefully make you feel something in return. I believe the world has become very numb to embracing emotions and the ability to express them. I hope to change that by showing people how liberating it can be to freely express yourself.
It is my dream to one day open my own fine art gallery where I can exhibit my art for others to enjoy.
