Entry Description: My work is derived from my childhood memories, family lore, and my nighttime
The inspiration to photographically reconstruct old family stories
was a way to record them and document how they helped form who I
am. By retelling stories visually, I want to present to the viewer the
unique set of symbols I have found within them.

images, utilizing analog and digital formats, and alternative
processes. This approach creates visually rich, layered images that bridge the past and the present, me and my family.
