Eating StrawberriesBriagolong Australia
Strawberries started her art in 1997 whilst still in primary school, when she entered the Australian Red Cross competition, with a drawing depicting the kind of work the red cross do, and won the state wide award for Victoria, Australia. From there she continued to practice and explore art as much as she could with the limited access she had to the art world. She won her fist camera, a Minolta, in 2000, from the state “Water for Life challenge” in Victoria, Australia, which promoted the use of saving water, and from there a love of photography was born. Artist Eating Strawberries’ first work under her professional name, was a poem called “Gothic Promise” which captured the eyes of some established artists on the internet in January 2010, which lead to a rapid increase in artistic exposure. Strawberries, now an established artist, specializes in fine-art alt fashion portrait photography, Gothic and grunge digital photo manipulations, and drawings, along side her poetry and Gothic short stories. She bases her work on her love for the Gothic sub-culture, Music, cinema and theater, and as any artist does, her own life experiences.
