|My photographs are visual poems, small stories that evoke universal emotions. My focus has been on self-portraits and layered images created digitally in Adobe Photoshop. These are often combined with embroidered text, adding a three-dimensional element to the page. The text is gleaned from poems that have resonated with me and speak to issues I am exploring about loss, aging, and family.
By using the processes and concepts I learned in printmaking and collage, I am exploring the possibilities of layered photographs. I have always found the printing process to be mysterious and magical. The excitement I felt when printing etchings and lithographs is similar to waiting for my photographic image to print.
