Born 1985 in Memphis, Tennessee, the oldest daughter of an art lover and medical doctor I have always been drawn to art but with a talent for science. Growing up I attended both summer camp and Saturday classes at the Memphis College of Art. Over time, learning everything from drawing to ceramics to metal and glass working, I honed an interest in bright abstractions.
I work with photography and photomicroscopy. By taking daily life as subject matter and shifting their scale, I enjoy exploring the world around us all, and through the microscope reveal hidden details and textures.
My photos are characterized by the use of everyday objects and chemicals. By applying abstraction, I like to find framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context, and where different rules apply than can be viewed in everyday life. Pieces don’t often reference their recognizable form. The results become deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted by separating objects from their preconceived definitions- where a stain becomes a landscape unto itself.
Currently living and working in Lansing, Michigan I’ve received an Associates Degree in Applied Science and Photographic Imaging. I am an art dork, and science geek, with a passion for all things weird or misunderstood. I am a fine art photomicroscopist and love to look at the beauty of the world in a whole new way.
