A new chapter, A better chapter.
Some things we could regret, but if they made us better even through all of the hurt, why regret them at all?

Photography by Clara McGuire.

Based in The Berkshires of New England, Massachusetts.
Survivor of the rare-and most often deadly-Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome,


Activist Artist and Model, advocating for people with "invisible" illness & disabilities.

On a mission to change perceptions of--and raise awareness for--
patients living with chronic, rare, mental, invisible illness and disabilities--
such as chronic migraine, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, SMAS, and C-PTSD--
and patient rights to medicate with medical marijuana before the use of opioids and narcotics.


Each month I have to out-of-pocket hundreds of dollars for medication my insurance doesn't cover.
Each print sale or money donation to ClaraMcGuireArtistry@gmail.com go to covering medication costs.

You will be supporting an artist with both chronic illness and invisible disability, who cannot work "normally", function as normally and healthily as possible, while helping manifest her dream of living off of creating art a reality--The best and most important things you could ever do for anyone.

There are angels among us.
This upload inspired by and dedicated to the lovely MorrisCat, who consistently reminds me that both angels and miracles do exist in this world, and they aren't rare, but actually occur all the time, we just need to be open to them. :hug: Open your heart and good will come your way. :love:

Opening up my heart more than my mouth was one of the best decisions of my life. 🌹✨
Liability.
The story behind the image:
Yesterday my soul was screaming at me to shoot, but my physical body wasn't really up for it. 
Nearly all day I was struggling with the two fighting each other, essentially fighting me.
I finally said to myself "okay, let's at least attempt to create a look and shoot"
I began to start the makeup look, but the look I was trying to create ended up being THE SAME EXACT THING as my last look,
and that apparently was just too fucking much after a day of my brain fighting itself,
and I began sobbing the hardest I've sobbed in an incredibly long time. My whole body and mind felt so damn defeated.
I was literally TRYING to create, and I totally fucked it up!--or at least I thought I did.
After tiny the pity-party, I changed my perspective and asked "How can I use this to my advantage? How do I make this mood work?"
So I messed the makeup up even more, turned myself into a clown, and shot some of the best self portraits I have taken in years.
Fuck.
Yes.

There is beauty in the breakdown.

(Also I saw the angel number 811 after uploading the first image of this series to deviantart, I am clearly doing something right. :D)
