Courtney B. Ropp - Creative
I am a creative, specializing in a wide range of mediums: Video, Photography, Pen, Color Pencil, and a Performer. I began my career as a Combat Photographer & Videographer in the US Army for 6.5 years. I have an Associates of Arts in Social Sciences and a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Digital Media and a minor in Outdoor Adventure Leadership.
I am a Producer and Director with Teensy Leader Pictures that I co-founded along with Cody Hamilton and Gregory Klino.
My work is an exploration of sociology, using art to document social performance and attitudes. I make art that is simple, intentional, and improvisational, which is a representation of the way I live my life.
In my photography, there is a structure and rigidity to the creation of the work. In contrast, my sketches mirror my nonchalant attitude towards social structures. Within my photography, I shoot portraiture because it is in the eyes that all emotion is expressed and the focus of my exploration. As Confucius stated, “Life really is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” I desire to make life, and my art, simple. I don’t want to instigate anything; I want to simply expose by capturing people’s own perspective. Ultimately, I hope I create pieces that motivates and promotes deeper thought.
