A STATEMENT FROM THE ARTIST:
My work is a fusion of things I would like to see, things I wish I could find in reality, and a visual scrapbook of places I’ve been.
I grew up working for a portrait photographer in Las Vegas, NV. As a female photographer, and one who wasn’t really interested in shooting people, I used to feel trapped by the every changing set of standards other people dictated to me: Why don’t you use a $10,000 lens? Why are you using this filter? Why aren’t you interested in real nature photography? Why don’t you just shoot weddings? I made myself a promise: I’d use whatever means necessary and available to me to get what was in my brain onto the final product. No restrictions. I began traveling the world to visit places and then returning to Oregon to transform them into unique hybrids of photography and collage.
It is my hope that those who view my work can find their own connection between dreaming and waking, desire and memory, and dark and light.
