Born and raised in the greater Seattle area, I am an artistic photographer, educator and curator. While working with a distinct focus on artists who come from a position of disadvantage; I aim to expand my skills as a complex and diverse visual communicator.
Working both nationally and internationally, my projects abroad have focused on human rights based migration from Syria to Europe as well as from Central and South America to the U.S. In personal projects I work from themes of legacy, memory, identity, feminism, psychology and social justice. I utilize interdisciplinary media to fit each project including Digital, Analog and Alternative Process Photography, as well as Videography, Painting, Illustration, Sculpture and Bookmaking.

My husband and I love to find and visit places that are out of the ordinary. Some of them are surprises like our hike in Goodwin CT State Forest where we hiked to The Governor’s Island (photo #1) and the Kinzua Sky Bridge in PA (photo #2) that we found on Pinterest and decided to take a camping trip this past summer. I have found some of the best photos I take are not planned at all but taken when we come upon the moment!
Sandra Jeknavorian – Professor of Art
On meditative adventures in forests, meadows, and beaches, I slow down from the normal pace of life and my eyes fixate alternately on the macro and micro worlds of the landscape around me. I collect natural artifacts that call to me along these walks and they become the literal subjects of my most recent drawings. In a broader, more metaphorical scope, the subjects of these works are memory/mystery and life/death. My drawing process begins by observing and drawing the object in front of me, but later I put the object away and let my imagination take over. This series of drawings are done with pastels and/or charcoal on Legion Stonehenge drawing paper.
