Love your city!


Even if you feel like there is nothing in your city, get out and just try to see the beauty.

I love going out and just finding unique views to capture that feel of OKC.

Here are a few shots I got during a late night stroll.
Everywhere from Scissortail Bridge, Bricktown to Deep Deuce OKC. Enjoy!

Journey Toward An Open Mind


Creating a photograph,a representation, of yourself has never been so free!

What would you create when given the resources to make a piece of art for yourself, to show the world who you are?
Using mixed media to represent Photoshop, gave each student a hands on experience to create exactly what they envisioned.  I took each students photograph with their idea of what they wanted to create and then printed them off in various sizes to give even more freedom when collating them with their magazine cut outs, scrap paper,ect.

We were given three days to create, Here are a few images during the process from start to finish.

 

 

Framed and ready for the show!

Their portraits where on display at Fred Jones Jr. Museum at Oklahoma University in Norman, Oklahoma for the public to view.

 

 

Mission Academy Self Portrait Program

Self expression is a subject I could talk about until the end of time.


Expressing yourself is never limited to one outlet, a few examples of artistic outlets are music, painting, or my choice, photography.

Using mixed media in this program allows each teen to find pictures they identify with to express themselves in a different view outside the camera. We will be using magazines to find pictures they can relate to or just like and collating them with their self-portrait. The possibilities are endless and that is what makes this so exciting!

No rules, no expectations and best of all imagination is encouraged to run WILD!

I have created a few of my own mixed media self portraits to show just one way to use this form of expression. I am elated to show off what each teen creates and help them come up with something they can completely relate to and be proud of. Make sure you check out all of their work, as it will be shown at Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Norman later next month!

I hope you all enjoy these portraits as much as I do! I will have a short video up after this exhibit is done to show my process in creating my portraits aiming to inspire everyone to try creating their own.

 

 

PHOTO/SYNTHESIS Outreach Exhibit


“Create something that means something”

 

I am overjoyed with what all this new year entails! One of my new adventures is…

I am serving as the artist in residence for the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art outreach initiative in conjunction with the PHOTO/SYNTHESIS exhibition, created by teens attending Mission Academy High School.

By giving each student full control of their self-portrait I hope the experience brings a sense of identity and self love by seeing each of their works framed and on display. There is not an opening date for the exhibit yet, but don’t you worry, you’ll be hearing about it!
Until then check out the PHOTO/SYNTHESIS exhibit we are coinciding with, the opening reception is Jan. 26th!

Personal growth is a deep journey that everyone experiences differently one thing we all have the ability to connect through is  art! Taking a self portrait is more than just smiling & making sure you didn’t blink. Using self identification activities, each students thinking process will vary along with each portrait. Creating a self portrait with no limits, no rules, no expectation will bring openness to each mind, ultimately ending with each students portrait capturing a different view of self expression. I will upload a few pictures of this project coming together throughout the weeks I will be working with the students, along with my self-portrait I will be doing along side the students.

I am humbled by this opportunity and couldn’t be more ready to bring photography to  young minds and get to know everyone I’ll be working with along the way!

Cheers to the New Year!
