Using photography, collage, and re-photography, Combers images combine representations of figures, objects and moments within illusory space and real space bringing the real and the imagined into a shared frame and a common realm. Her work frequently deals with the nature of photographs as both tactile and visual objects original photographs are often the subjects of the final photographs, as they are cut out, altered and ultimately re-photographed into the final compositions.
She not only creates series of photo-based art but has expanded to explore her first loves of traditional pen drawing and collage. She has been exhibited, published and collected internationally. Her work has been awarded through Magenta Foundations Flash Forward competition and was selected for their compilation Carte Blanch which was the first of its kind to highlight excellence in Canadian photography. She is a graduate of Ryerson Universitys Image Arts program and works and lives in Guelph, Ontario.
