Covid and Creation.. Rebuilding from the Pandemic.
Hey friends, I'm Chelsea but some of you know me better as Tragic Glamour. I've been focusing on my photography since 2015 above all else and since the pandemic, I had to take a big step back. I have asthma and I'm considered high risk so I had to put my business on hiatus when this all started. In July of 2020 I decided to dedicate my time to returning to my roots by creating in different ways that led to opening an Etsy shop.
The Etsy has been pretty successful with over 250 orders in a year, but no where near replacing my income yet. The pandemic has been rough financially.. but the biggest gift I received in this struggle has been that I am fully betting on myself now. I have no back up, I have no savings, but I do have a lot of hope.
I've been working to up my marketing, create cool stuff for my shop and rebrand my business to fully encapsulate all that I have to offer. Since I have adhd, I tend to drift from project to project so this new era of doing a little bit of everything has been so amazing for me. I love being able to do a little of everything, despite always being told I needed to focus on one thing.
I'm still working on brainstorming plans and learning new things but some of the things I am planning on doing with my work will be:
My new shop called Healing Energy Elements
Additional things I want to add: (please subscribe/follow)
New YouTube diy videos and turorials
Twitch Streaming of the Sims 4 and Y2k Games
My goal is to continue creating my art in every way I can and find ways to share it and myself with the world in the hopes that I can make a living off of my art.
My goal with photography is to show people what they look like in their best light, create more fashion based work and continue making pop culture/video style photos. I could see myself working towards doing music videos at some point but that's more of an idea right now. My biggest goal is to land an editorial in Paper Magazine, Plastik, W and Vogue.
My goal in healing is to continue working on my journey and to help others on their journey who are guided to me. Either through my words, videos, reiki, items I've made, notebooks, cards or whatever else.
I feel like I'm on the verge of a major change in my life and I'm ready. I hope you'll be interested to see what I come up with!
