Today we’d like to introduce you to Satara Dyse.
Satara, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I am a 21-year-old self-taught makeup artist and hair stylist born in Northern California. We moved to Texas around 2011 to escape the negative surroundings where we were. I played with my mom’s makeup and did fake “haul” videos for youtube, since I was little I love editing and photography and video and music and the idea that through different senses you can create another world for someone to escape to, even for a moment. I doubled as my own escape. I eventually went to cosmetology school on a luck spurt of getting into a booked class in a cloud of what to do with my life as an 18-year-old. Thought I could kill two birds with one stone and take what I could on the hair side. My aunt had a salon growing up, and now my lovely cousin Jade has a salon in the Bay Area, and I wanted an extra certificate under my name in a very saturated industry anyways. So it just felt right to do. Since then, my life has been a whirlwind of ups and downs, and I’m determined to make it out with the vision I have planned for the world. I started modeling a few years ago on the side as well; I wanted to have a well-rounded vision. Hair, makeup, photography, and editing. I wanted to be in front of and behind the camera. I want to do it all so I can truly and most accurately display my own mind. Creative directing is my goal.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’ve always been a very inward very philosophical and cynical human, for as long as I can remember, my head has been in the clouds thinking about why things are. Makeup is my escape; it is my meditation. It gives me time to focus on a singular goal, show beauty. It’s become so much more for me than a hobby. Something about someone else displaying themselves in my own thought out the perception of their beauty, for everyone to see in a physical and visual form feels so beautiful to me.
Emotion, and color, and ENERGY, it’s beautiful. Using my tools to evoke as many different emotions and senses as I can, make people FEEL something is my goal. Bring everyone back into their bodies. My own morphed Synaesthesia.
Expressing my own essence how I can and through something I find true passion in, true genuine work, to send the world my message, which is the importance of love of self and love of those around you. Beauty. Love. Transcendence. Agape.
The sterotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
Don’t stop working. Keep going, remember what you’re doing it for. I have done plenty of free work to get to the level of experience and opportunities I’ve had. You have to risk to gain if you have real passion for what you’re doing and you believe in yourself the money will come.
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?
People can follow me and my life and work on my Instagram, @satardyse, and @paradysebeauty. I also have a youtube channel I’d start keeping up with more if people were into it!
