Performance At Tammany Hall by JaquelynSalanitri
Performance At Tammany Hall
A picture taken of me on Memorial Day of 2014. It was in Tammany Hall in New York City where I performed poetry at an open mic!

Recently I became a marketing manager intern at an art gallery. It's been fun and sometimes stressful but I get anxious over a lot of things so I'm still figuring it out. I'm entering my junior year of college in Dowling College and I'm still an honors student. I've been painting and drawing and writing a lot. Well today and yesterday I haven't. Sometimes you just need a break. Still, art is very much a part of me. I still wish I didn't give it up initially. However, I have realized why I gave it up to begin with, but that's personal. I will say, that no matter what, don't give up! Even if there are people who don't believe in you, don't give up! Art is an extremely subjective medium of expression and not everyone is going to like your work. On the flip side, there are many who will love it!
As for upcoming projects, I'm working on a new poetry book complete with illustrations.
Oh yes, the gallery I'm interning in is hosting an open call. I unfortunately, don't know how to upload a photo in the journal section. More details later.
Goodbye to Younger Self by JaquelynSalanitri
Goodbye to Younger Self
Goodbye to younger self is two versions of me in spirit. The woman on the left is my younger self and the woman on the right in armor is me now. It is a testament to how much I have grown and overcome in life, and how much I still have yet to endure. No matter what the course, I always succeed in my endeavors regardless of how small or big each victory is.

Erin Miller
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
My real name is Erin Miller. I do sometimes go by the name of Jaquelyn Salanitri though. So how did this name come about you ask? Well, originally I was supposed to be named Jaquelyn but since I was born with red hair, the name Erin was given to me. Salanitri is my late grandmother's maiden name and it just sounds so much cooler than *pffh* Miller.
Anyway, I'm a student at Dowling College. I'm studying for my Bachelors in Graphic Design and Digital Arts with a minor in Visual Arts. I'm an honors student as well. Hopefully, I stay in Honors but we will see what happens.
Eventually I want to get my Masters of Fine Arts but I'm not sure in what yet.
My favorite medium to use is charcoal. I only recently got the adobe creative suite CS6 and at the moment I have no tablet, hence my use of the mouse.
I like to draw on toned paper but just about any paper will do. I had a brief period where I had completely stopped drawing but now that I'm back into it, there is absolutely no turning back now.
I do get commissions often and you can check out my website for yourself. It's a new web site and very amateurish at the moment but when you're on a tight budget, you make do with what you have available to you.
