How is the internet changing art? What about social media? Scrolling through my Instagram I’m amazed and inspired by YOU. Everybody is an artist. To me, art is a form of communication. We express our feelings and thoughts through an image.

Some people may not understand the art of photography and yet according to the word’s most basic definition, an artist is simply a person who creates art. I define myself as an artist. Art is subjective hence it cannot be measured by its significance or the level of skill with which it is created. And that’s the beauty of it all. Social media has changed the world as we see it. I remember when I first started on Instagram, back in 2014. I used it to simply share my outfit looks, kind of like a journal. Then I learned that you could monetize on your Instagram content and make money. This changed everything and yet I felt a longing within me that wanted to express myself even more. I didn’t want my followers to just purchase my looks but instead I was hoping to make them feel empowered and inspired every time they visited my page. That’s where the art came in.
