    "JR Blackwell is, what I call, an American Renaissance Woman. Photographer, Writer, Model, former Freak Show Performer, an all around Creative Dynamo.

    Her flickr only lets you see into the photographer/model part of her artistic life. Do yourself a favor and google her so you can get the rest of the pieces.

    In short, she rocks :)"

    "JR Blackwell is mentioned often when it comes to naming influences. She is brought up quite a bit when we talk of inspirations. I still think it strange that she gets surprised when people recognize her talent. When people want to use her for that talent; whether it be her writing, or her photography, which are both incredible. But it's that very thing fact about her - how humble she is - that makes me love her all the time. How can a woman like her not realize how absolutely wonderful she is?"

    "If you want to know anything about J.R. Blackwell then I want you to know that she's nothing if not imaginative. Her photos are experiments with her eyes and ours. We get to see the things we don't bother to put together when she gets to work. She's emotion in the most inventive way you can be in everyday life. She's every afternoon of our lives if we just bothered to take everything in."
