August 1 - August 31

Tell us briefly about your background & how you got started in your medium.
When I was very young, I enjoyed drawing and painting. My parents noticed my talent for art and signed me up for art classes outside of school and creative summer camps. When I was 11 years old, I participated in a photography summer camp. At that point photography became my favorite medium and my love for photography started that summer.

How does your medium inform your viewpoint? Or what do you like most about your medium?
I started my photography experience by being intrigued by the outdoors, including plants, landscapes, and wildlife. Then I started experimenting with photography and discovering intriguing ways of utilizing macro photography. My figure photos demonstrate a minimalist approach to a distinct perspective using macro photography, everyday objects or food, and miniature people. These photographs capture food and familiar things in a fun and compelling manner, which, in turn, will hopefully put a smile on your face.

Who or what have been your artistic inspirations?
My artistic inspiration comes from the famous Picasso paintings. He pushed the limits of what was considered art in his day. He inspired me to pursue a more creative and abstract approach to photography while thinking outside of the box.

Do you have a favorite piece in your portfolio?
My favorite piece is the “Seeing Green” photograph. The day I shot “Seeing Green,” I was walking through a park, looking around, and taking photos when suddenly, I saw a bullfrog pop up out of the water. The frog was hiding in the duckweed, just staring at me. I thought, “Wow, what a cool photo that would be?” At that moment, I carefully but quickly lay on the ground, focused on his eyes, and took several photos before the frog disappeared under the duckweed. The “Seeing Green” photo was the start of my photographic adventure!

What would be your advice to artists just starting out in your medium?
The goal of my macro photography is to create a “wow” and put a smile on your face. Maybe you will say, “I never thought of food that way.” So, my advice for new photographers is to have fun and think outside the box. Use photography to express your fun side.
