Beth Conklin is a photographer and digital artist from Birmingham, Alabama.
She graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in mechanical engineering. While in college, Conklin also studied photography, but she is primarily self-taught in digital art and collage. She draws inspiration from interesting old photographs�a child with a sad face, a hauntingly empty room, a lady with a mischievous look�and gives them new life. Conklin uses vintage photographs�recycled memories, faces, and places that she brings together with modern textures to create beautiful and dark dreamscapes
All pieces start with a vintage photograph which she colorizes and extracts into a digital collage process. Each collage is printed on archival paper and mounted on a painted wood panel.
