Creative Manifesto

To draw you must close your eyes and sing.
— Pablo Picasso

And I’ve left my eyes open for too long. As I celebrate another year of Studio Sophy (it turned 4 years old this month!) I’m setting creative goals for myself. This year, I w̶a̶n̶t̶ t̶o̶ will

  • Spend time getting lost in my imagination.

  • Be a beginner.

  • Create art I’m proud of, in mediums I want to explore.

  • Get lost in that process and feel emotions.

  • Write more.

  • Share my work on this site. Share my work everywhere because I’m proud of it.

  • Shoot portraits.

  • Shoot fashion.

  • Start building a studio.

  • Continue to study great photographers from the past and present.

  • Collaborate with other creatives.

  • Spend much more time doing personal projects than paid freelance work.

  • Not let the pressure of practical everyday life get in the way of my dreams.

  • Reclaim my passion. Rediscover the work that is meaningful to me. Redefine my identity as an artist accordingly to my own standards.

  • Realign myself with the reason I started this website in the first place. Studio Sophy is a world of truth, imagination, and dreams.

  • Put my heart into my work. And sing.
