Hello, as of September, 2013 I am a first year graduate student in the MFA program at Columbus College of Art and Design. I’m currently in the planning stages of my first project for the semester.
Primarily, I have been working as a portrait photographer for the past year and a half photographing families, children and events. So I’m looking forward to getting back into making artwork for reasons that’s outside of a client based relationship. However, I am continuing to do portrait work part-time as I work on my projects (I just photographed a family yesterday). So, I will be balancing a client based relationship alongside of my personal artistic endeavors. Which In the past, many times, I’ve had to put my own artistic goals aside. (I’m sure all of us has experienced this at some point, at a certain level.) So, I’m glad to finally put them first.
On the technical side of things, one goal that I would like to explore while here at CCAD is to use photography, installation and other mixed media into my work. (Not sure yet how I will do this and in what context but it’s something that I would like to at least try, and fail at—if nothing else!) I’m interested in the use of layers to convey a sense of space so I’m sure that will come into play.
Also, just want to put this out there, grammar is not a close friend of mine, we’ve accepted our relationship so if you see a horrible spelling or grammar mistake, feel free to let me know. Otherwise, mehh, We are all human, right?
