My name’s Breonny, (or just Bre if that’s too daunting to pronounce.) In a nutshell, I am a 29-year-old photographer and life-enthusiast, currently residing in Dallas with three rambunctious children and one exuberant mutt.
As you have grown within your talent, what inspires you to create?
I am continually inspired by the beauty of the world around us and the people who move in and out of our lives. It is the awe of the dawn and the power of rushing water. It is the way a musician makes love to his instrument or the tingle of new romance. It is the empty yearning of loss. These are the things I see, that beckon me to capture them, preserve them, enhance them, and release them on the world. I create because I need to, because I know no other way.
How long have you been producing your craft and why did you begin this form of expression?
I’ve been shooting for a little over 12 years. I spent my childhood experimenting with numerous forms of creative expression including writing, and various visual and performing arts. When I discovered photography at 17, it felt so natural and intuitive I soon abandoned all other interests in fervent pursuit of this one, all-encompassing desire. After spending years working exclusively in commercial ventures, I set out 2 1/2 years ago to explore the world anew–to refind the passion for art that lured me behind the camera in the first place. My work has taken a whole new adventurous direction. I see things in ways I never have before. I also devote a tremendous amount of time to manipulating my images into unusual methods of presentation, effectively blurring the lines between photography and painting.
What do you ultimately want to accomplish with your talent?
Simply, to place my work in front of an audience and convey the value of true beauty, and the one, fragile life we have to experience it.
Outside of your artistry, what other interests do you have?
Lately, I find my time outside of photography and art spent simply enjoying life with my children Riley, Rixie, and Bryndel, and riding and rebuilding motorcycles with my boyfriend, Brian.
What was your first experience with ArtLoveMagic?
My first experience with ArtLoveMagic was attending girlShow 2010. I was overwhelmed by the number of artists squished into one show together and the chaos of art flying at you from all directions. I’m thrilled to see my ArtLoveMagic experience come full circle and participate in girlShow for the first time this year!
