Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Page-Walker.
Elizabeth, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I am a friend, daughter, sister, a woman, and an artist with a heart for adventure.
I grew up in rural South Georgia and left as soon as I got old enough to. I went off to college and got a BA in Mass Media Arts and minor in Chinese.
After that college thing, I worked and traveled throughout Mainland China for almost two years. I taught English to a ton of really cool kids who did way more for my soul than I admitted at the time.
I’ve also had some other pretty amazing experiences – walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, riding a double-decker bus through England & Scotland, attending (and photographing) hundreds of live concerts, skydiving, hang gliding, and walking through a blizzard in Montreal in December.
I value my friendships and relationships. I’d like to say I’m blessed with many close ones, and that really is all I can ask for.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I create photographs using a digital camera to convey life. That can be messy and raw. Sometimes to convey that, I pull from emotions from my own life.
When I was 17, my mother passed away. She was extremely close to me, so I feel indescribably empty in her absence. Several years later, I lost my maternal grandparents who helped raise me.
I still have two close relatives in my life who mean the absolute world to me. I know that when I can no longer remember, there can be a photograph of the times we spent together.
The message I try to give to other people is to stand strong against the pain and adversity in your life by expressing yourself and to document the beauty and pain in your life.
What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
I am a part of numerous collaboration groups in Atlanta that bring people into the industry together. I’d suggest always having a group of people that you can trust in your industry to give you honest, constructive criticism but also support you when you’re in a creative slump.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
