I'm 20 years old… born and raised in Mississippi. Currently, I am junior at the University of Mississippi where I major in English (with an emphasis in Creative Writing) and minor in art. After I receive my B.A. I plan to attend graduate school to continue my studies in creative writing (fiction and poetry) and art (book and paper arts, illustration).
I love to experiment with a wide variety of art mediums, from drawing to collage to assemblage. To me scannography is simply another art medium. When I scan an image and it is displayed on my monitor, my first thought is "Does this image have potential? Does this look good?" If it is strong enough to stand on its own, I leave it untouched. If it is weak (or if I am trying to achieve a specific result), I will edit it. I'm somewhat of a minimalist when dealing with scannography, so the bulk of my scannography work only
features a single image on a black or white background. I also suppose that many of my scanned work could be labeled "clandestine scannography" because I edit them to the extent that one cannot tell whether it was originally scanned or photographed, whether it is scannography or illustration.
