Artist Statement

Travel is the fount of my inspiration

Most days, the beauty in this world is overwhelming. I can’t help but respond with gratitude to the Lord through recording all things that take my breath away. I love to explore and immerse myself in different spaces different cultures, architecture, landscape. It’s a wonderful adventure, which Id love to share with you.
I paint in watercolor or oil. My paintings are inspired from my photos by the people and places I travel to and live in. Currently, I live in Tokyo, and many of my paintings are influenced by all things Japanese.
Born into a military family, I’ve been moving every few years. The longest I lived in one country was 13 years. Every few years is a new adventure, a new language, new friends to make, and many visual delights to absorb.
As an adult, Ive kept on traveling. The more traveling I did, the more photos I took. My interest in Photography started in high school with my dad’s SLR camera. This progressed into digital photography. I love my photos. They’re my memory of being in that place. Nobody else’s. I know thousands of people have taken photos of the Eiffel Tower, or Big Ben, but my photo is mine. No one will know how I felt at that moment, but me. And I’m reminded how I felt at that moment when I look back over my photos.
By the end of college, I had only just begun to explore the creative world of digital montages. But what to do with them all I couldn’t let them just fill up space on my hard drive. How often we take photos, store them and rarely look at them again. So, I developed and turned them into montages.
I create digitally manipulated and arranged photographs to create one new image. Its a complete sense of being in a place. One visual scene to capture the totality of my travel experience. These montages reflect my memories often distorted and dreamlike in their composition. Arranged jigsaw pieces expressive how it felt to be in that place, with a sense of time having had passed.
