Y. Hope Osborn is an author, photographer, digital artist, editor, and web designer residing in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA. She publishes writing on ecological experiences that educate and entertain and personal traumas that encourage survivors and expose victimization. She photographs the jewels of color landscapes, mindful of unique, momentary beauty. She composes black and white abstract and documentary photographic studies of historic and timeworn architecture in rich tonality, vivid texture, and creative perspective alongside texts of history and her story, weaving art with how she/we think, feel, believe, connect, and care. She digitally abstracts photography in play reminding all to not forego imagination.
Hope built on a lifelong talent in 2020, earning an MA in Professional and Technical Writing. She is published as author and artist with Woods Reader, Plants and Poetry Journal, Whitefish Review, University of Arkansas at Little Rock Writers’ Network, Awakenings, The Sunlight Press, and blogs, including Fusion Art, Light, Space & Time, and Red Cross. Her works are exhibited and awarded, including Monovisions Awards, International Photography Award, Julia Margaret Cameron Photography Award, Not Real Art Artist Award, Arkansas Arts Council SWOP 2024, and See|Me, locally, internationally, online, and off (Portland, Oregon; New York City; Miami Scope, Santa Paula, California; Arkansas, USA and Barcelona, Spain).
Regardless of accomplishment, Hope believes being a great author and artist is to be entrusted to express reality and imagination that captivates, inspires, or informs while enriching lives.
