Amy McRae, photography-based mixed media

I am a visual story teller. Whether it is telling the story of an abandoned silk mill, sunsets, handmade paper or a family’s connection with each other, I am always looking for the story to tell.

As a photographer, story teller and an artist I challenge myself to find ways to create distinctive visual art. This has led me to a delicate process of melding my images with other substrates such as handmade paper and Yupo paper.

The magic happens when I lift a very thin, transparent emulsion which contains a photograph and transfer it to the substrate. The texture and color of the various substrates adds interest, variety and depth so that each piece is an original and has unique variations. My art work is always evolving as I seek new ways to present my photography and invite others to view it.
