I create traditional photographic works and digital collages. My collage work is created through digital imagery, film, textures, papers, found objects, and various materials combined into photoshop. Most of the imagery collected is from my daily photographs or film archives. I am interested in creating collages that allow me to imaginatively express my fears, dreams, desires, and views of the world. Typically my collages explore ideas such as identity, nature, chaos, serenity, and isolation. I enjoy collecting similar and dissimilar pieces then collaging them together to form a new reality or make a statement about the current reality in which we live. More recently, I have enjoyed exploring landscape and street photography. Capturing the simplicity of light and shadow in the environment helps me to slow down, be patient, and enjoy the beauty of the natural world. Photography is a way for me to connect with people and communicate my stories to my audience.

These events are free and open to the public. If you are unable to attend the opening or closing receptions with the artists, works can be viewed at The Root Monday-Friday from 9:00am-5:00pm. This exhibition will be on display September 27 – October 30, 2021.
