She is currently taking a break from her Influencers series, which is comprised of portraits of people who have influenced my life, to explore different modalities, including cardboard collage and mixed media stencil works.

Feb 25 - Steven Koppel, EXPRESSIONS Gallery - Fine Art Photography 

Steven Koppel: “Arrive empty of expectations… leave filled with gratitude.These words guide my creative life. During all hours, seasons, and conditions, I frequent Cape Cod’s waters to be present in places of beauty and personal meaning.

My imagery allows me to express what I see and feel, but the experiences themselves are my greatest reward.”
