About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    Alisha Jurgens studied photography at Pickens Technical College, in Colorado, graduating with honors. Jurgens sees beyond subject in order to capture deeper emotions and truths, choosing to express a sense of peace, solitude, and contentment in her work by using creative techniques with her camera to bring about a visual expression that’s not a stoic exact representation, but an interpretation. Starting with a basic photographic image, she layers in textures and colors, mixed with personal emotions and allows the image to guide the process. She considers herself an explorer from the moment she is capturing an image to the moment she shares it with others. Her work can be found at Beautiful Art Gallery in Parker, Colorado and the Gift space at Art space gallery in Shreveport, Louisiana.
