Chalk Flower, by Stephanie Gillis

This photo was taken for my Photography class in High School. We had a project that called for a still life of our own creation. I like things made of rainbows and flowers and thought I could incorporate it well this way. It reminds me of being a little girl and looking forward to seeing rainbows after the storm and the May flowers that I used to think came for me, since my birthday was in May.

Photographer: Stephanie Gillis ( Toledo, Ohio, USA ) Registered
Stephanie Gillis was born in Toledo, Ohio in May 1994. She has always been artistic and really into photography. When she was younger she thought the chances of her becoming an known artist was about the same as becoming a rock star. But her mom encouraged her to try to make a living off of what she loves. She hasn’t done really anything professional yet, but she is working her way there. She hopes to get a lot of exposure of her artwork and maybe one day sells it. Stephanie Mostly does it for the passion and the fun. Her life motto is, “Photography is a part of who I am. It’s how I see the world. Everything is beautiful, you just have to see it through the camera’s eye, and not the eyes of people.” She lives by that and let it guides her.
