LI WESTERLUND, Photographer, MFA. Li focuses her art work on photography and mixed media, obsessed with the dialectic between light and darkness, the literal and the abstract, nature and man-made, and movement and stillness. In her abstract expressions she often focuses on introspective investigations to capture that which has no structure. Li was born in Uppsala, Sweden, but now lives permanently on the coast south of San Francisco, USA.
