Patience Alferea [alf-ee-yah] is my name.
Twenty-five years old is my age. Art is my passion.
I create art through words, drawing, photography, performance, and digital media. I have been writing since I can remember. Growing up, it was always therapeutic; however, it wasn't until college that I started performing original pieces. I guess there is something a little nerve-racking about sharing that part of yourself with others -- your deepest fears, greatest desires, and most intimate thoughts all spilled onto a page and thrust onto the ears of others.
"God is in the midst of her,
she shall not be moved;
God shall help her,
just at the break of dawn."
"No longer will I hold my tongue
While these words burn inside.
I choose to stand out;
I will no longer hide."
- Hidden, Patience Alferea
I have been blogging on and off for about 5 years now -- more off than on. (LOL) I am always writing, but I don't always publish everything that I write. Somethings are just more intimate that way I guess. The purpose of this site is to not only feature my work but to provide a platform for other young artists as well. I will not promise to post weekly or even monthly, but I will promise to be transparent, honest, and passionate about everything that I post.
