Photography

I completed my B.F.A. in Media Arts with an emphasis on photography in May 2016 at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, and I've been shooting for a thrilling seven years. 

As an artist, my work deals with identity, domestic spaces, and the play between artifact, experience, and image. Drawing from my personal relationships and midwestern suburban roots, I create work around my ongoing fascination with the word “home.” I'm currently exploring that obsession through my traveling photo company, Home + Maker.

Here are some of the photographs I've created over the years. To view the content I've created for clients' social media, click here

Undergraduate Thesis Series: Seeking Home

‘Seeking Home’ is a series of thirteen photographs, presented as 16x20” framed, archival pigment prints. These images were created as a personal exploration of home as an emotional space. Each photograph was taken within a five month period as I meditated on my identity as a queer woman, my love of warm and beautiful light, the relationships I most value, and how all of this comes into play in the space and feeling of ‘home.’

The photographs were all shot on medium format film using a Mamiya 7. For my research, I consulted theory regarding queer kinship and the idea of ‘found family,’ architectural concepts, and memoirs whose authors were asking the same questions I was.
