Fall Greetings

While searching for autumn inspiration,  I found a set of water colored plants that were being sold individually as PNG files. The idea was that they could be combined into multiple art pieces through a computer editing software. Though these files were unpurchasely expensive, I thought it might be cool to use a similar technique to create my project. THE PAINTING PROCESS Initially I intended … Continue reading Fall Greetings

Twenty Six Hour Drawing

The drawing instructor gazed at us with a smile spreading across her lips. “Create an imaginary world,” she said, enticing our imaginations. What was not as enticing, however, was the hundred sixty eight hours and  twenty four inch papers we had to complete the assignment. Given that mermaids would be the easiest subject for me to draw, I settled on an underwater world in watercolor. My friends in … Continue reading Twenty Six Hour Drawing

The Portrayal of Human Beauty Through the Eyes of an Ancient Artist

Throughout the ages, people have concerned themselves with appearances and the illusion of a perfect human form.  Beauty, however, is a fleeting frame of mind. What was once considered attractive is no longer main stream today.  Of course, this seems obvious. Fashion, make-up and hair styles change constantly… but so does the idealistic human form. I hadn’t really thought about this until recently while visiting … Continue reading The Portrayal of Human Beauty Through the Eyes of an Ancient Artist

Night on the Lac Léman

Went camping along the Lake Leman. By camping, I mean staying in cabins not too far from the water’s edge. On our first night there, Grace and I sat on one of the docks along the shore. Being there  reminded us of another lake in a country far, far away. We talked about life and whatever else flooded our minds at the time. Both being interested in … Continue reading Night on the Lac Léman

Shadows Dancing on the Wall

Saw this image while cleaning out the hard drive. It’s of my favorite display at the Centre Georges Pompidou: Shadow Play by Hans-Peter Feldmann. It’s basically composed of little figurines casting shadows on the wall as they rotate on a disc.  You can just sit there and watch it for hours. It’s kinda funny under what circumstances I ended gazing up at this display. We were supposed to spend the … Continue reading Shadows Dancing on the Wall

Midnight of the Magic Flashlight

Here goes to DAY2 of shooting midnight pictures at Lake Hennessey. This time it was seven of us on a Friday night after vespers. We didn’t go onto the main dock because a group of fishermen beat us to the spot.  Instead we parked by the side of the rode, went through a gate and walked down a path to the water’s edge. Having been … Continue reading Midnight of the Magic Flashlight

Floating American Dream

This past weekend I was kayaking with my friend Zach when we came upon a peculiar sight. There was a house floating in the middle of the river! What a crazy sight for sure! The house looked abandoned except for the solar panels on the roof top. Zach and I where like “Oh, what a nice location to make a film!” but upon closer investigation, we saw signs that … Continue reading Floating American Dream

Making Dreams in Film and Digital

I recruited my roommate Cheyenne to help me out with a film/digital project. In between studying, I did her hair and makeup. The carnival inspired eyeliner and hair bow made her look like a little kid. Had her dress in a pretty blue dress, got some baloons and we were ready to go! The point of the photoshoot was to capture angel lighting on film, but I decided to take advantage of … Continue reading Making Dreams in Film and Digital

Butterfly Girl

Recently I was inspired to create this new profile picture for my photography: Inspiration was from one of Nina Pak’s picture’s featuring a woman with a blue butterfly on her face. Unfortunately, the exact image has been removed from wordpress due to people posting it on their sites and crediting me as the photographer. I feel like my own picture needs to be cropped and … Continue reading Butterfly Girl

An Afternoon With Koda

I redited some pictures that I had taken for my Digital Photography Class during winter quarter.  My first WordPress post actually has two of these images as I had turned them in to the teacher. During the photoshoot, I got to work with Erica and her horse Koda.  It was the first time Erica had ever ridden bareback. We had a lot of fun, but almost had … Continue reading An Afternoon With Koda

I had the pleasure of helping out with the True Beauty Retreat for 7th and 8th grade girls this weekend.It was soo much fun – and everyone got to dress up all fancy! Although I helped out in the kitchen for a bit – I wore this green prom dress and a beautiful apron that Amanda’s Grandma had given her. Little Bo Peep, don’t you … Continue reading Evolution of my Little Bo Peep Facebook Picture!
