Artist Statement:
This piece depicts my reaction at the moment when I
realize I’m being watched. While this isn’t a situation I have been in personally, I have always connected to the“naked in public” feeling. I wanted to show this concept while keeping it playful with a bright color scheme.

Artist Statement:
In all my work, I tend to strive for emotion. This image was part of a series I did emphasizing feeling the unknown. I chose to place the model in a bathtub, exposing her to her deepest emotions, questioning who she is, and whether or not she accepts herself.

Artist Statement:
Pollinate’ is a combination of contemporary typography, textures, and earthy tones with a flourishing visual explosion of flowers, hemp, and burlap to abstractly promote the resurgence of bees. I drew influence from street branding popular in today’s culture, fusing tasteful trends with a major worldly issue.

Artist Statement:
Street photography is a style of photography I enjoy for there is an excitement about capturing and making the emotions of everyday events come to life. For me, it is bringing to life those little moments that we take for granted making them forever memorable

in an image.

Artist Statement:
My art is based around taking objects that we see every day and distorting them with unnatural color or manipulated forms. I enjoy letting people who view my art gaze into a surreal, fantasy world while keeping them tethered to reality with familiar figures.
