Here is the artist statement for this series:
As a recent transplant to East Tennessee from Houston, Texas, I am mesmerized by the drastic change of landscape I have experienced. I have gone from the open flatlands of Texas to the confinement of mountains and smoky skies. Another change in my personal landscape is relocating from a city with over 4 million residents to a city of less than 30,000 people. This work reflects my overwhelming feelings of both isolation and awe of my new environment.
I have completed one piece from a series I have entitled, Finding Home. The series consists of images taken in both Texas and Tennessee and represents the dichotomy of emotions I have regarding the region I where I grew up versus my new home in Tennessee. Upon completion, each piece will be housed in a handmade wooden light box.
