I am a 36 year old college student and mother of three. I have been studying photography and graphic design formally since 2014 and am currently a Junior in the BFA program at Converse College, but I have been photographing people and my surroundings as a means of expression and documentation since I was about 9 or 10 years old. My process has evolved to include constructed narratives in addition to pure documentary narratives. I'm inspired by Flemish Painting, Steve McCurry, Sally Mann, Mary Ellen Mark, Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, and uncountable unknowns I've been exposed to via social media. Any work outside of my personal family projects has been possible due to models sourced from social media and acquaintances of acquaintances or good old fashioned "talking to strangers." I look for light and shadows where ever I go, and I never leave home without some sort of camera on me.
