Description Based on the Four Seasons: Summer in a bamboo forest. Focus on the kimono pattern with the floral colors showing through.Born from my love of traveling, I endeavor to capture the essence and characteristics that I find specific to a place.With multiple images collaged and manipulated, overlaid and intertwined, I am recreating pieces of my visual encounters and memories.The visual illusions created when multiple photographs are layered form distortions; teasing the eye.This process develops the rudimentary snap shots during travels into a visual memory of being in a place. It is more than an instant, yet elusive, and almost evasive, like our memories. The snap shot becomes a sense of being somewhere: senses including textures, colors, cool and warm tones, seasons, cultures. A sense of time; a moment having passed. A combined, unity in multiple moments in and around the same place. My artwork is inspired solely from my photographs and my memories.
