Nature is my muse. With my camera in-hand, I search out and discover details that inspire; whether it be a found object or living plant. These details are what I am drawn to; a delicate balance of life in it's most intimate form.
I feel that I have lived many lives in this lifetime; having experienced a lot of life, death, and beautiful transitions. With my exploration of self and consciousness I have found a sense of peace within my heart. The art of nature, balance, and harmony.
I moved to Arizona in 1996, as I was drawn to the Sonoran Desert, open vistas, and the endless blue sky. This magical landscape that I live upon continues to inspire my work. For the past 15+ years, I have been a full-time wedding photographer and artist in Flagstaff, Arizona.
My studies include a BFA in Photography from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and a graduate of Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine. My education has lead me to be knowledgeable in all camera formats, know my way around a darkroom, experiment with alternative processes, and to create visual art on a daily basis. Most importantly, I am continuously learning and growing with life experience. Travel has opened my eyes and my heart to the connectedness of the world, for this I am forever grateful. I have traveled to many countries and even lived in Peru for 6 adventurous and unforgettable months.
