Sunset in Roma
Since my mother gave me my first camera at a young age, the source of my drive and passion always included a camera. I never call myself a photographer but I am never without a camera. The idea of my artwork becomes of the moment I am experiencing around me, through my lens. Some photographs develop into more in-depth mysteries of my life journey.
I think of my artwork as taking a page from memories. Sunset in Roma began on an artist inspirational trip, during a study abroad trip in Italy. Created in my studio in Texas, it took on the life of a learning experience and then evolved into what it was in my mind, a melancholy memory.
Often times my artwork evolves from a single photograph and turns into a creation of much more. Sunset in Roma began as a blurry and underexposed photograph. I could envision the potential in what my lens captured, a mystery that inspired me. I see fragments of a place I got lost in its beauty. I want people to envision their own interpretations in my artwork as if it was, their own memory.
