My art is constantly evolving. My inspiration is in constant flux and the moments and people around me come and go. What I created yesterday is what got me to today.
Northwest Ohio is the birthplace of not just myself, but also of my deep love for creating. I can’t remember a single season of my early life that wasn’t filled with sketchbooks, cameras, film, and paint. In 2002 I received my Art Education degree from Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana with an emphasis in darkroom photography. In 2009 I graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a degree in Fine Art Photography.
The majority of my adult life has been filled with teaching, learning about, and making more art. My openness to adventure has lead to living overseas, many travels, and fantastic photography opportunities. All of this has eventually led to the evolution that is my work today – something much different from my work in my undergraduate or graduate years. I have no doubt that the next few years will bring yet many more changes in my artistic style and inspirations.
My work during this season (2015) focuses on two series. One is a Reflection series with the intention of changing the way we see the scape that surrounds us. A second series (not pictured here) focuses on storytelling through image transfers and quilting.
