I began my love of photography as a young child. My father was a photography enthusiast and I became enthralled with the idea of capturing a story through images when he would photograph me as I would tell him stories that I would make up – you could almost see the imaginary worlds through his lens in my facial expressions. I was hooked. Telling stories through my lens has become the hallmark of my creative process, be it in a series of images or in a single landscape. My choice in subjects for my art is often greatly influenced by my health and my need to social distance, even long before the coronavirus pandemic. In 2016, I was finally diagnosed with a genetic immunodeficiency called Common Variable Immunodeficiency. Photography became my creative outlet for meditative healing. Much of my landscape work seeks to tell the story of calmness and serenity as I envision it while allowing me to photograph in an environment that is safe for my immune system. My art is recognizable through the detail, story and my love of all things technology to bring the image alive.
