Artist Statement

 

The Alba Series was created between 2008 and 2010, during a prolonged stay in Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K. In December 2008, I moved from the United States to Edinburgh to accompany my husband while he worked toward his MFA. This was the first time I had ever left the USA. The work I produced during this two-year stay is a reflection of my experiences and psychological reactions to this new environment. Combining portraiture, still-life and landscapes, this series is heavily influenced by the incredibly rich historical presence in Scotland. Taking cues from the traditions of Old Master paintings, I photographed the people, places and objects of daily life to reflect my personal, day-to-day experience of living in Edinburgh and my fascination with the differences I found between Scottish culture and my American culture.
