The Way I See It
Life has taken me on many journeys since my early days in rural Nebraska where I was born and raised by a hard working single mother of four. I've been able to share my adventures on social networking and have recently found a way to tell my stories through my photography.
I've been a Marine, a Pre-K teacher, a SAG Actor, a Disaster Relief Volunteer, a Garbage Man, a Heavy Equipment Operator, and many others...but above all, I am an creator and explorer at heart. If I can't do either of those I feel as if I can't breathe. I've been a bit of a perfectionist at most of the art I create and have never seemed to be satisfied with my artwork. When life events changed my perspective on the world, however, I could see the results through my photos and I've been happier with what I see and feel with my photography than anything I've created. Above all, it makes me happy and lets me be true to myself. I don't have to convince anyone of anything or prove myself to anyone, I can just "be me."
Perhaps why it makes me so happy is that it's a way for me to express how I see what I see, a way for me to help tell my story and share my perspective. You can often find me lost in thought and contribute it to rampant Attention Deficit Disorder. However, I like to call it Attention to Detail Disorder. I see many details, and I find them entrancing. I've learned to use my camera to capture what I'm seeing and above anything else, it's soothing for me to print them and let them come to life on my wall and tell me a story. Hopefully you'll find something that tells its story in a way that connects with you. For now, what is for sale is available on Etsy. <--Click to see.
I'm excited for this site not only to give people the opportunity to own some of my story telling, but also to have a collection point for my adventures and perspective to come to life. Follow the Blog to join the journey, I'm happy to have you come along. -Rob K.
