I use my camera to communicate. Through my images and my art I find my purpose and my voice. I believe that art is meant for more than just viewing, it is meant to be experienced. What's more, is I believe that art can be a platform for change, on an individual level or on a larger scale. This is what I strive for in my work.
I have been an artist since before I can remember, finding solace and comfort in creating. Expression has always been easiest for me through visual means, and now with photography even more so. I began photographing in 2010, searching for beauty and meaning in unlikely places. I quickly enrolled in a fine arts masters program in photography at the Academy of Art University. I am currently working towards this degree with my skill, passion and voice growing stronger every day.
Most of my work focuses on the complexities of the human experience, birth, life and death. Whether I take more of an introspective approach or a more public stand, what remains is the humanistic value of my images. I am a passionate dreamer with a strong personal and emotional connection to my work. I want to share this experience with you. Through my gentle compositions, I hope to involve you with my images in a quiet, yet powerful way.
