In this body of work, I explore the concept of identity especially in the way it relates to how we see ourselves and how others view us. In my video, I share my own experience of shedding a part of my outer self to create room for a new part of me to show. The photo collage is a combination of my own painting and photography and is appropriately names Stuck in an Oil Painting. My final piece is a collection of street photography that I took while abroad in Florence, Italy. The connections can be seen among the people in the photos, but there are even more connections being created behind the camera. The most important part about creating art for me is to find beauty in the ordinary.
