Tra’ Slaughter

I am a self-taught artist, from the lovely south-east coast of Texas,
continuously learning and evolving my art as I go through life. Painting and
creating art for me are as necessary as water and air. It is something I must
do… and fortunately, art is my passion. It is a way to escape the day-to-day
grind, but it is also my way of taking life and making it beautiful… no matter
what the circumstance or situation, beauty resides in everything. Creating art
is my way of finding that beauty, and releasing it back into the world. I look
at painting as therapy and a means to express myself in a way and style that is
my own. I find inspiration for art in daily-life and activities. As an artist, I
see it as my duty and responsibility to show the everyday in a new way. I find
beauty in the regular… regular people, doing regular things. From a stranger
sitting at a bus-stop, to my daughter playing, to my pets lounging in a window
sill. It could be a bird sitting on a fence post, or even a face in the crowd on
the street. Beauty is everywhere. Finding it is all in how you look at it. There
is always something interesting and beautiful in the most simple of actions and
activities… and finding it and showing that to people through my eyes, well,
that is my mission. To show people the beauty in the everyday around them. To
show that regardless of what it is, there is beauty everywhere in everything.
