I watched an interview she did on youtube and was impressed to learn that she has been doing photography for about a year. She has a love of storytelling and began in film, but moved on to photography after graduating film school in 2008. She works in photoshop and attempts to add a painterly feel to her images. She shoots on location and underwater. The majority of her work is somber but she recently added a red riding hood piece to her flickr stream that I love.
