Scarlet Black is a Surrey based Artist-Photographer. The contemplation of Beauty is a recurring theme in her work. The tension between beauty, meaning, sensuality and the temporal nature of life inspires much of her photography. Frequent subjects include: the garden, landscapes, flowers and motion blur photographic impressions.
After completing an MFA degree, Jannette Maedel/Scarlet Black spent several years designing costumes and sets for local Vancouver theatres. From theatre, she moved into fashion and designed a swimwear line for three seasons. Upon returning full time to art, she took on the persona of Scarlet Black, and chose to concentrate on photography and painting as these areas offered more opportunity for creativity than applied design. She is an artist photographer with the ability to leverage her considerable applied design experience into strong, contemporary photographic concepts and artworks.
