I experience joy each time I look through the lens of my camera and take a picture. I find that exciting because the information in that photograph allows me to express an artistic visual expression I can share with you. Whether that expression reflects my thoughts, intuition, desires or actions, the final rendering represents my perception of a transient moment. The concept of my work speaks to emotion, spirituality and awareness, and any other qualities that emphasize beauty of subject matter. I do this by creating pictorials inspired by manipulating information in the image to reflect an interpretation of what is in my mind’s eye. And, the outcome is always an invitation to you, the observer, to move into a space of speculation and experience a moment of joy, as I conceived it.

My work is known as 'EDi by Darlene.' While I apply both traditional and unorthodox techniques in post processing my images, the intent of an 'EDi by Darlene' is to reflect a perception that invites the viewer to reprocess, rethink, and see a perspective that does not duplicate reality.

Over the years, I have exhibited in Washington, DC; Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and in New York. I am honored to have my works juried into national exhibits, humbled by those who have acquired my pieces for private, charitable, and corporate collections.

Please contact me directly for custom or limited edition art pieces.

Darlene is an experimental visual artist who uses digital media to produce complex, aesthetic ideas through careful control of composition, focus, lighting and ediing. In that process, traditional tropes of photography are removed to bring a different yet substantial perspective that invites the observer to reprocess, rethink, and experience a moment as it was conceived.

Darlene relies more on organic methods in post-processing while allowing technology to enhance her process. As such, her art pieces are transformed into gallery quality limited edition pieces using archival inks on cotton mould-made paper, accrylic face mount or infused aluminum prints (only available directly from the artist).

Darlene studied photography at the Corcoran School of Art and Design and current is exploring post-prosessing techniques of the digital medium. She pursued a B.S. in Technology & Management at the University of Maryland. She is a member of the Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), Black Artists of DC (BADC), and the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA). Her works continue to be acquired for personal/private, charitable and corporate collections.
