Almost 4 years ago, I found myself paralyzed in an abusive situation. I was a shell of my former self, with little to no hope left.

I don’t remember when I started following +Marylou Falstreau, but her paintings and stories gave me a glimpse of a girl I once knew. One of her paintings really spoke to me, and I had to have it. But I couldn't afford it. She sent me a small print of the piece anyway. I was shocked and so grateful.

This is the story that goes with this piece...

"One day she woke up and opened her arms untying the knots tangled and turned them into golden ribbons streaming from her heart. She wondered how the simplicity of it had escaped her memory and kept her tangled in this dance for so long.

Today she dances with sunlight and the soft ocean breeze that sways trees and releases crimson petals breaking free, no longer bound to anything. She is boundless, she is as big as the ocean, she is as big as the sky, she breaks free. She is crimson like a rose petal. She breaks FREE."

I just discovered this print as I unpacked another box that has been in storage for almost 3 years. And it now has new meaning as I find myself finally independent again.

Marylou, you will never know what this print meant to me. I cannot thank you enough. xoxox

This weekend was the last shoot for this house. I've been shooting it all year, as certain parts of the house were finished. Only 1.8 million dollars in renovations. Great day.

This is what it looked like last night at dusk. I suppose I could be forced to live here. But then, the mosquitos came. O M G Thousands of them. If you turn around from this view, you see the lake. Eeeeeek! There are misters all over the place that come on periodically to shoo the mosquitos. Uh huh. No workie, people. :P

My step-mom has been renovating this entire house. It's very contemporary. Check out the kitchen. Look at the groovy lights on the ceiling. I've shot this house 3 times already, and we're still not done. It's amazing.

Story
Tagline
Artist. I tried to contain myself, but I escaped.
Introduction
  • I'm an artist working mostly with digital (photography, video, etc), but I'm known to paint on occasion (when I want to throw the computer out the window).
  • More formally...  Christi Nielsen is a multimedia artist who works with photography, video, and new media. Her work using mobile devices was shown at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Contemporary, and at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. Nielsen directed inter.sect Art Collective, a group of artists exploring new media and digital exhibition spaces. 
  • I teach Photography and Emerging Media and Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas.
  • I shoot fine art that deals with social commentary, but I also shoot interiors/real estate and travel.
  • And then there's sass. Gotta have that. I decided there is only so much crazy I can take before I have to start blogging about it. Delusions of Grandeur
Bragging rights
I am my own heroine. According to my mother, I was cool from Day 1.

Sam is awesome. I just moved to the area and had to find a new dry cleaners, which is always maddening. This place didn't have very many reviews, but they were good, so I decided to try them out. Sam talks to everyone, so you might have to wait a few extra seconds. When I returned for my clothes a few days later, he didn't ask for my ticket or even my name. He remembered it, and pulled my ticket and my clothes. I was shocked. The prices were very affordable, and my clothes were clean. I'll be back, Sam!
