ARTIST STATEMENT:
My passion for photography grew out of my love of looking at images. Since I was a child, magazines and books full of pictures were magic worlds for me. I love capturing and creating those moments of the absurd and the divine that tell us the stories of who we are. When I am looking through the lens extraneous distractions disappear, my mind is clear and I am completely in the moment.
