Danielle Tipton

My work is distinctly dark and disturbing fine art photography representing the struggles of mental illness and overwhelming emotions. I work with mainly self-portraits, reflecting difficulties that I had to deal with due to a dark childhood. Instead of denying my dark emotions, I now embrace them through the art, allowing these overwhelming feelings to inspire me creatively. I use it as a form of therapy. Life and art have entwined themselves and my prime purpose is to make my audience feel uncomfortable by this darkness, therefore giving them a small taste of my world. Instagram: Daniellas_ghosts
