Long story short, I'm losing The Great Loftspace.
The loftspace is the photography room that exists in my parents house, and I have moved out to live in Vancouver.
Now, that house is being sold, and so it is the end of the lovely grey loft with the big natural light windows.
But that's not the end of my as an artist or photographer, it's just a time of growth and change
I've spent six months in the city intensely studying acting, and working towards becoming a working actor and model.
I've made lots of new friends in the city, and it's really opened up new doors for me.
As much as I love the country, there is just not a strong enough arts community to thrive here.
And I want to say, that, while I've been quiet for a long, long time, I have struggled with illness, both the physical illness of my mother and my own depression and anxiety about not being good enough. But this spring feels different. It feels happy. I feel like my joy and creativity have returned. I want to draw, and paint and photograph again. This feels like a time of great healing and growth for me.
I suppose now is the best time to finally tell you guys my real name. I'm Laura Auffray.
Wow. That was easier than I thought. Yep, I have a name, and now I'm trying to get it out.
If you'd like, you can check out my new facebook pagewww.facebook.com/lauraauffraya…
And if you view my demo real, you even get to hear my real voice ^^
Moving ahead, I'm really not sure what the future holds for me, but I'm looking forward to it. It feels like things might just turn out ok.
