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 photographing people, I used to feel trapped by the ever-changing set of standards other people dictated to me. I also felt more inspired and drawn to surrealist imagery and wondered how I could use photography to tell dream-like stories.
It is my goal with each piece to consider the building, statue, or creature as having a voice that can tell me what it dreams about. I want forgotten structures to be reborn into fantastic adventures and sacred spaces to become someone’s favorite sanctuary.
Each image I produce contains real photographs I have captured, blended into dreamscapes and memories. 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.
I only create three prints per work, so collectors of my work know they are getting a piece as unique as the subject matter.
