T. Valdi is the creative ego of Tricia Wanamaker, a woman of artistic passion and activism. "That's All There Is? The World Through [our] Eyes" is a line from one of her favorite Depeche Mode songs of a similar title. Both a literal and metaphorical play on the lyrics, her sketchbook is filled with sketches of the eyes of important figures in her life, as well as inspiring words & memorable quotes regarding each.
She is a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, with a deep-rooted passion also for sexual assault and endometriosis awareness. Her life's narrative has long been her strongest motivator in her art, her dark past transforming into her now bright life and future ahead. Her partner Erin is her biggest muse, the lead vocalist of ELSIE BINX a continual fountain of inspiration and love and support.
Truly the windows to the soul, eyes have long been T. Valdi's favorite thing to sketch. They tell volumes of stories, allow you to truly see someone--or at times, see only what they want you to see. This book of work is the sketched embodiment of its title, the lyrics the truest representation of an artistic journey: Let me take you on a trip, around the world and back--and you won't have to move, just sit still. Let me show you the world through [our] eyes, and leave you begging with the question: is that all there is?
