As a classical/jazz trained pianist, I come to photography looking for visual melodies. Just as music can take you on a journey, make you laugh and cry and touch the deepest part of your soul so can a photograph. I am a storyteller look for visual narratives that define a place in time. Drawn to finding beauty in unexpected places, I hope to intrigue, inspire, and evoke a reaction from the viewer. As a champion of the overlooked, I see my photography as a way to create change, giving exposure to societal issues that need to be addressed.
I am also influenced by a combination of traditional and contemporary artists, including Georgia O’Keefe and enjoy presenting comparative images of contrast and texture. Road trips across the Southwest have given me a deeper appreciation for the big sky, the open road, and the natural world. But I am just as intrigued by microscopic worlds closer to home. No matter where I turn my camera, I want to bring my compassion, humor, and sense of curiosity to the work I create.
