Sam Bleakley, Brisbane Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement Hello there.
Sam is the word I was issued at birth by my parents for identification.
I'm an aircraft maintenace engineer by trade and a photographer by hobby (for now).
I reside in a shoebox sized unit with a special young lady friend in Hamilton, Brisbane.
Discovering the magical art of photography put a big smile on my face, I find it very interesting and I feel it has infinite possibilities.
I have never been too great at painting / drawing and I'm glad that other methods exist to bring out ones creativity / artisticism (not a real word).
Anyway, I have always wished there was a method to exactly reproduce my imagination for others to see, as I find things are always funnier / better / more interesting in my mind before it is output to another medium. Ideas and visualisations in the mind seem to lose a little piece of themselves upon exit. Its annoying as noone else gets to see behind the scenes. Anyhow, as time goes on, I hope to improve my ability to display my imagination more accurately.
I could jibber jabber joo all day but I wont because I dont feel like it.
