My name is Jessie, I'm 23 and I'm bisexual. I live in a small town in Texas, I love photography, and have had a camera in my hands since I was a child.
I would like the world to know that not all Texans are ignorant red necks.
I love photography, Lolita, and pretty much all things cute.
Thank you for reading.

Born in Harlow, Essex, England, the New York-based artist Samantha Keely Smith’s artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and the tidal sweep of our emotional life, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. She attempts to map the place where these worlds intersect. The translucent layers of paint, contrasting soft ethereal brushwork and harder edged sweeping gestures, echo this divergence and depict a timeless place that hovers between dream and reality in a way that is simultaneously alluring and menacing. The work exhibits the struggle between and among the variety of human impulses: impulses that are as necessary as they are contradictory, and which therefore constantly undermine our psychic and social coherence even as they endow us with vitality, soul, and life.
