After four years of studying Advertising Design and Commercial Art, I found my interests were not in the field of design. The goal of outshining my coworkers drained my creativity and as much as I tried, I could not continue in such a business-driven career.
Photography was my way of making art, of bringing fantasy and beauty to life, letting others become the most magical, creative versions of themselves. Very quickly I was drawn into the other side of the camera, creating self portraits to progress my art. Runway shows started as a means of networking with models and other photographers. Throughout my life I have been able to choose not only photography but modeling, acting, and performing! Through different performance ventures I've learned to hula hoop dance, to sew a dress from scratch, to walk on stilts. I've performed with Foreigner, on stage in Disney World, in feature films I've gone to the theatres to see. I've danced and sang and performed stunt work with the most incredibly talented people. For these reasons and more, I've chosen the name Allie Lynn Arts to represent myself. People have told me for years to choose one career and stick to it.
That is far too limiting for me.
Allie Lynn Arts is dedicated to experiencing the beauty of this world in all of its wonderful forms. My aim in life is to have fun, be wild, never settle and to inspire anyone and everyone to do the same.
My name is Allie Lynn and I am an artist.
