My concentration revolves around the exploration of fashion and the feeling it evokes in viewers.
Through my investigation, I have found that fashion is not something that only exists in the way one dresses, but has to do with ideas, feelings, beauty and confidence. In piece 10 I played with the idea of turning a woman into fashion as she becomes the gem she is holding in her hand. For image 7, rather than using formal materials, I used makeup and photoshop to create marks on my face, offering an aura of extravagance as seen in magazines and on models. Using embroidery, glitter, gems and other mediums of the fashion world, I was able to incorporate surface manipulation and mark making into fashion photography and digital art.
