Today we’d like to introduce you to Starla Little.
Starla, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I have lived a very complicated life. I’m generally uncomfortable talking about myself but for the sake of art, I will share the laughable lines from my current bio… “High school drop out turned young mother. Former model turned photographer. Observer; photographing life and fashion from my prospective.”
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I still don’t know what I’m doing. I feel like everything I have made is because I had an intense urge to make it, it happened by chance or someone told me I couldn’t.
The past two years people had been really supportive and honestly, I was finding it hard to stay motivated. Now I am faced with a new challenge and that is starting over. I am new to San Diego as of February and I had decided this would be my “year off” to figure out how I will fit into the arts community here.
I hope if anyone takes anything away from my work, it’s that consistency is overrated. There is nothing exciting or new or interesting about being consistent. I hope they see the growth that happens through observation and experimentation. I hope they are compelled to engage.
Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
The role of an artist now is what it always has been, a form of self-expression. Because I personally enjoy photojournalism and documenting life, I tend to make my voice known by what I choose to document. I think with a quick glance overwork someone could probably make a few accurate guesses about where I stand on major issues.
