A native Californian born in 1980, Corey Grayhorse came to Rhode Island in 2002. She brought with her a California flair for fantasy that emerges in her photographs of costumed participants wearing tutus, dayglo outfits or animal masks, evoking her own Alice in Wonderland scenario and often drawing on popular culture. Grayhorse, who studied photography at Santa Monica College, wants to recreate her imagined inner visions, which usually evoke humor rather than pathos: they have a clown-like sensibility. Grayhorse makes her living as a commercial photographer and possesses a mastery of digital enhancement techniques.
