WESLEY is a talented photographer (and videographer) with a gift for capturing extraordinary beauty in everyday moments. Discovering photography through his iPhone 6 two years ago sparked a passion for creating visual art through photography and video and tapped into Wesley's artistic spirit. He's since picked up dedicated still & video cameras and is driven to develop his skills.
A senior architectural engineering student at Indiana State University, Wesley has used his creative talent as a student worker with ISU's Marketing & Communications office, CANDLES Holocaust Museum and the Arts Illiana gallery.
Outside of his studies and visual arts, Wesley enjoys listening to jazz & Lo-Fi Hip Hop, spending time with his cat & two dogs and playing PC Minecraft.
OLLIE is a skilled artist & amateur filmmaker, honing her skills in a wide range of mediums. From ink and watercolor drawings and designs to photography and music videos, Ollie has a wide range of creative outlets (including acting!). One of five kids, she's been involved in Terre Haute's community theater scene since she was 12.
She plans to pursue a media major and serve time in the Peace Corps once she earns her degree, eyeing a career in film & television.
Both Wesley and Ollie grew up in Terre Haute and know the community well.
If you see them out and about in the coming weeks, capturing the sights and sounds and experiences of life in The Haute this summer, feel free to stop and say 'Hi.' You can look for their work on our social media platforms and in upcoming episodes of The Haute video series.
