Darlene is an experimental visual artist who uses digital media to produce complex, aesthetic ideas through careful control of composition, focus, lighting and editing. In that process, traditional photography tropes 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 works are transformed into gallery quality art using archival inks on cotton mould-made paper, acrylic face mount or infused aluminum prints (only available directly from the artist).
Darlene studied photography at the Corcoran School of Art and Design and currently 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), Maryland Federation of Art (MFA), and the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA). Her works continue to be acquired for personal/private, charitable and corporate collections.
