My FURSCA 2010 project was a commentary on American consumerism—we all have a lot of stuff, and I thought this "stuff" would be interesting to photograph, document, and exhibit. To create my Michigan Garage Project, pictures of the inside of garages, I taught myself how to use digital SLR cameras and editing software. I entered some of my photographs into exhibition and attended the Michigan Society for Photographic Educators' Midwest Regional Conference. Upon graduation I plan on moving to Detroit to become a part of the blossoming art scene there—I one day hope to open my own printmaking studio.
