My name is Stephanie Parks, and I知 an artist (undergraduate student) in Louisville, Kentucky. I consider Photography and Painting to be my most intimate and successful work, though I dabble in a variety of media. I知 exploring as much as I can while I知 at the undergrad level. I致e been involved in the arts from day one, in truth, but only the past few years have I realized exactly how much I needed to be an artist. With this realization has come a drive to do what I need to establish myself and put myself out there while I知 still in school, so that when I go on to a graduate program and beyond, I may have a little start to work with.
Much of my art, for better or worse, comes out of this very intuitive place. When I slip into that particular mode, I often forget much of the world around me (including basic needs, such as food) until I find a stopping point that simply feels right. I知 currently testing my limitations by doing a small study series of completely nonobjective paintings that may eventually turn into large scale pieces. We shall see.
