Octavia Biddle's Profile

About

One day I was born. Shortly after that I decided there were a few things that were indeed worth being alive for: Autumn, the North Wind, Cats, and Art.

one of my favorite things in the world, and something I'm afflicted with almost every minute of everyday, is something called "Saudade." It's a Portuguese word that is notoriously one of the hardest words to translate. To me it means a sort of nostalgic desire or longing for something or someone that may never have existed. It's an odd state, one that always pervades my daydreams, and is a feeling I attempt to convey in all of my art and photography.

I get a great joy out of creating wonderful things from an odd assortment of materials. I collect everything. Often times I'll pick up something neat, thinking it'd be great to use in something, only to have it sit around for years before I find…

I get a great joy out of creating wonderful things from an odd assortment of materials. I collect everything. Often times I'll pick up something neat, thinking it'd be great to use in something, only to have it sit around for years before I find something to do with it. By then I usually have an odd attachment to it and don't want to use it.

I get a greater joy out of other people finding the things I've made wonderful as well and wanting to cherish them as their own. I make up stories about my art objects that have gone to live in other homes. I like to think about the adventures they get in there, the happiness they find, and the friends they make.

I love custom items. 9 times out of 10, if you can think it, I can make it. Want something in a medium that I don't currently have in my shop? Ask anyway! I have a lot of skills that I don't put on Etsy and am only limited by imagination.

I offer private photo sessions. Want beautiful, unique, and enduring photos of yourself, family, toaster, etc? Convo me! I offer extremely reasonable rates and can provide an online portfolio upon request. I love every style of photography, from boudoir to senior pictures, vacation shots and family portraits.
