Newly moved into New York City alone after graduating college, I worked three part time jobs, one of them at a busy restaurant as a server to make ends meet. Being a sensitive person, I couldn’t believe the unkind interactions I experienced. Life was uncertain and most days felt like there was a dark cloud over my head. I longed for warmth and kindness. In order to cope, I decided to create my own. This is why I started iejvxr. In a world that can be cold and gloomy, iejvxr tries to be a small reminder of hope to bring some sunshine to your day.
What does iejvxr mean?
The jumble of letters doesn’t mean anything itself, but there’s meaning behind it. I wanted to make art as anonymously as possible, creating a pen name that did not indicate what kind of person I was, or where I was from.
