Life has a way of transforming us into something we no longer recognize. Photography has been fundamental in

peeling back the layers of my life and reconnecting me with my subconsciousness. The intention of my work is to

eliminate all that is superfluous and engage mindfulness. My images are meant to provoke self-reflection, which

encourages the development of true well-being, which is where we can find ourselves again.

Given the current world we live in, I believe mankind would only benefit from self-reflection, engaging our

subconsciousness and bringing awareness to what truly matters in life. This scholarship would give me the

opportunity to explore the extent of how photography encourages self-reflection and grant every viewer a passage

towards their own introspective quest to re-connection within humanity and with ourselves.

Bio: 

My parents immigrated to America from the island of Capri. I am first generation born in Palm Beach, Florida and was fortunate enough to spend my summers in Capri. I grew up capturing the two places closest to my heart through my lens, not ever realizing the relevancy.

While in college studying international marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, I took a black and white photography class. Which inspired me more than anything and ignited my passion. I graduated from FIT, got married had two beautiful children and shortly thereafter I went back to study photography at the School of Visual Arts in NYC where I received a BFA in photography. It was a challenging journey but such a noteworthy experience on so many levels! You can find me capturing moments anywhere between New York, Palm Beach and Capri!

The focus of Crystal Clean, is to explore the idea that seemingly absolute perfection is a prison and entrapment we unknowingly encase ourselves in.  This crystal shell she lives in is striking and audacious, not easy to miss. It acts as a label slapped across her body to be stared at,...

I am a self-portrait photographer, who specializes in conceptual art. Although greatly influenced by historical drama, my work is deeply personal and symbolic in nature.
