Young Artist Profile: Photography and Manipulation

I'm really enjoying these photos, manipulations and collaged images by Jessika, aka, ((( CHEYENNE ))). See a few of her pieces below with some info about the artist.

Jessika, 20, lives in Sweden and uses a tablet, a 400d canon, illustrator, photoshop and gimp to create her artwork and illustrations. She began drawing when she was three and pulls inspiration from everything around her. Recently she realized that, for her, the search to find a specific "style" actually hampered her creativity.

"Trying to stick to something like a "style" is like not allowing your creative thoughts to flow enough, and everything ends up in a categorized frame that does not let you discover new things and experiment with your thoughts and ideas."

Now she tries to follow an idea organically, not knowing where it will lead her and usually finds it reminds her of an experience, such as a dream or song. She enjoys interpreting her work's meaning and message as she progresses.

Starting in 2007 her illustrations were published in Swiss mag "Insight," Asobo Webzine, and Girl Core magazine. Click over to her photostream for more or follow her tumblr collection.
