In this series, I create dream-like landscapes out of real places in west LA. By combining my instagram photos with painting and collage techniques, I seek to create moments of wonder that are literally and figuratively reflective. As we are continually barraged by visual imagery on social media, it's all too easy to miss the intense beauty unfolding outside our smartphones. Captivated by this beauty and wanting to memorialize these transitory moments, I use the very technology that perpetuates this distracted state to create the opposite – a state of stillness and reflection.
