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!

A Woman Who is a series of close ups of my body. Where stretch marks, stomach rolls, marks after underwear and body hair, which are seen as the ugly part of the body, become something beautiful.

As an emphasis was put on making your own protective mask at home during the pandemic, I began sewing fabric breasts into a protective helmet or shield. Once completed, I decided to push the concept further by making a protective body suit. In isolation, I used myself as a model. I began exploring t...
