PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY
Here is a sampling of a few portraits that I shot recently. It’s inspiring, getting the chance to work with incredible people like Arto Saari, Jefferey Dietch, and Tony Hawk.

STUMPY

AR4T ARTSHOW
Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow Gallery asked me to be a part of the Art & Nature: New Contemporary exhibition. The show featured artists from all over the United States, and explored a contemporary interpretation of the natural world. I created a hand-sewn creature called Stumpy, who couldn’t understand why his girlfriend, Miss Chainsaw kept cutting him down.

OPEN HOUSE CREATIVE ARTSHOW
I was also invited to exhibit at the Open House Creative ‘Print or Dye’ exhibition. Each artist on display explored unique ways of print making which made for an eclectic collection of art.

WORMHOLE

WORMHOLE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
I’ve recently created a font made of worms that were hand cut to communicate sarcastic saying and things that people would normally be too shy to say. Check out the ongoing Wormhole series on my Instagram, and let me know what you want them to say next.

Muse

Amy Purdy is my muse. I’ve had the chance to shoot Amy a lot over the past few years and I have to say, every time I come out of it feeling so inspired. Amy lives her life with so much purpose and passion that it is infectious.

Here are a couple of images from a shoot that we did in Idaho, earlier this year for her Live Learn Grow garment line.

Check out Amy’s website to learn more about how amazing she is, here.

EDEN: The Story of Element Eden

“Eden: The Story of Element Eden” is a short film that captures the story of Element’s women’s apparel brand, it’s family, Advocate program and vision to inspire girls on their own unique paths.  The film itself was co-directed by my handsome husband Kirk Dianda and myself. Over the course of the last two years we documented all the products and personalities behind the brand.  To string the story along, I created a set of handmade stop-motion animations that not only help tell the story of Eden, but also represent the brand’s quirky personality while detailing creativity and fashion.  Original soundtrack by  the Talented Loren Humphry.
