Buy art because you like it and because it moves you, and because it enhances your life.- Dan Fear
Being home for winter break made me realize how much I’ve missed having my own space that I can design however I like. Of course, I’ve had some help from my grandparents on the initial design of my room, but I’ve gotten to accessorize it myself. I love collecting things. Something that I’ve fallen in love with over the past few years is art collecting. That’s not to say that I have an extensive collection or anything, but what I do have, I love.
The first painting I ever purchased was one I found on Ebay. Aaaaand I was about 11 or 12 years old. I don’t know who the painter is, but I loved the look of it, and it was the first piece of art I’d ever owned that I hadn’t drawn myself.
My First Art Investment
When I moved to Dallas, I needed art for my new room, so I went to an art show with my grandmother, where I came across an artist named The Blake Wright. I love pen and ink and cartooning, and really liked everything he had on display. So naturally, I bought all of them (or, should I say, my grandparents, Sherry and Cole did). They now fit perfectly above the bookshelves, underneath my platform bed, and make me chuckle every time I turn around from my desk.

Another piece that I love a lot is one that I had originally commissioned for the cover of my album, “You Know Who You Are.” I ended up using a photo for the album that matched “Hello,” and I now have this wonderful piece of art by Lily Snodgrass in my room.
Me... by Lily Snodgrass
I acquired a photograph from Blake Malouf after I played at the opening of her art show. This piece is called “Doll in Decay.”

I’ve just acquired an amazing drawing from none other than THE COLE SMITH. Just looking for the perfect spot on my wall for it!
Coccinellidae by Cole Smith
Two beautiful pieces in my room are paintings done by my very talented cousin, Jason Stallings. They were commissioned for my graduation, and if you look closely, you can find several of my hobbies hidden within the paintings.

I also have a small collection of antique letter “T’s.” Their set up right now is kind of... temporary feeling, but they’re a fun and easy thing to collect. As you can see, two of them have fallen down... Oops..
Something else that’s fun and easy to collect is fortune cookie fortunes. I keep each one I get!
I keep ticket stubs, whether they’re plane tickets, or ticket stubs from the movies. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with all of these yet, but I’ll figure it out...
Most recently, I purchased a piece of art that I originally saw at The Kessler. For a long time, I wouldn’t hang anything on one wall of my room because whatever I hung would have to be really special. This piece called “Meditation,” by Clyde Igarashi was perfect.
