This project includes three bodies of work that explore different media. This was created for a scholarship application to the Arrowmont school.

I've recently begun to experiment with combining photography and sculptural installation. My technical knowledge of photography is limited. I would like to explore techniques in manipulating photographs, and possibilities of printing on various surfaces, this would allow me to experiment further and to bring photography back into potential sculptural media. The ideal class that would allow me to pursue this would be Daylight & Darkroom-Photographic techniques for the Artist & Craftsman.

Text is heavily based in my work so I've begun to explore the practice of bookmaking. Bookmaking requires formal and technical understanding of the materials. I've taken no bookmaking classes but undertook a book project in my independent studio. With further knowledge and familiarity of techniques and the materials needed, I would be able to translate other concepts into book form, and thus take on more ambitous projects.

In 2012 I created a vast body of work using typewriters as drawing tools. I incorporated my own writing from my journals into each piece. The results were images made up entirely of personal entries, however the content was masked by the layering of text. Since typewriters can only accomodate small pieces of paper, the pieces never got very large. I would like to broaden my techniques and dimensions by taking the Large Scale Drawings Class that incorporates both image and text, and requires journaling as part of the course.
