Today we’d like to introduce you to Theyzi Clark.
Theyzi, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I’m originally from Mexico, I moved to Colorado at an early age. Since childhood, I love arts and I’ve done almost every single one: drawing, painting, sculpture, sewing, leather, upholstery, crafts, you name it (except singing, I’m horrible at singing!).
While in high school, my teachers convinced me that I wasn’t a good fit for arts, so I got a degree in software engineering (which I’m grateful for, hello web design!). After graduating and getting a job in the corporate world, I decided to pursue a career in graphic design, after finishing 1 year, I had to move on to continue climbing the corporate world ladder.
After 3 years working for a global retail corporation, my heart longed for a more meaningful job, and for the third time, I went back to school, this time in the dental field (I wanted to be a dentist when I was a kid) where I spend the last 3 years working and at the same time, growing my business as a wedding photographer.
In 2014, I married my husband in the beautiful Gilbert Arizona Temple. The Army sends us away and after living 3 years in New York, we are back to the Arizona desert (my husband can’t conceive his life without it).
I love to travel, mountains, hiking and climbing and the desert have everything my heart desires! Nowadays, I’m a full-time wedding photographer.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’m a fine art wedding photographer. I’m in love with love, that ever after storybook love.
My passion is to preserve that love through photographs. To feel and connect with those in love, so they can look back at the images for the years to come and feel the warmth of their love again.
I want to share with the people that there are so much love and beauty in this world.
My artwork is carefully crafted. It takes a lot of planning, styling, and work, not only on the wedding day but before and after, from the planning to the editing everything is created with the sole purpose of spreading the love. If you look at my work and you feel something, then my job is well done.
Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
I’m a huge believer of a community over competition, I think the biggest challenge we face it’s passing that along to other creatives, to support other artists and to encourage them to grow along with us.
Also, the digital revolution and easiness of the internet and availability of many products online come the challenge of undervalued work, people looking for price over quality, managing everything online and the loss of the personal relationship between the artist and the community.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My work is available online on my website. I can be also found on social networks like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. Printed work is also available through my website and several printed wedding magazines (information is available on my website under prints/publications).
