I'M JOCELYN.

I'm a mixed-media fine artist living in East Tennessee.
 

Here's what I love to do:

 

MY BACKSTORY

I’m a mixed-media interdisciplinary artist, most happy with a beautiful mix of real-life people and working with materials. My years as a graphic designer—with its love of words, clear arrangements, and strong forms—informs my fine art imagemaking, both in my photography and my mixed-media work.

I started photographing at the age of 12 with my mother’s old Pentax K1000 film camera, and have simply never stopped (you can see for yourself!). Well over a decade ago I began photographing weddings & families, working in both film and digital techniques.

With hundreds of weddings and dozens of different families under my belt, I know that what matters most is creating images that help you remember the beautiful and unrepeatable things in life. My love of organizing (probably from my fastidious graphic designer experience) and my love of people help to make that process smooth & easy.

When I’m not directly behind the camera, I’m often playing with photography’s earlier ancestors. My great love is cyanotype, one of the oldest and first photographic processes. It’s hard to keep this fascinating process to myself; my love of people keeps me sharing the simplicity and beauty of cyanotype with people of all ages by teaching workshops.

I live in East Tennessee (alongside many other talented Appalachian artists) with my husband and three children, and share my reflections on creativity & motherhood on my blog.
