Artist Statement

The world occurs in the in between moments, the pauses in life. Nature flourishes where we forget to look. I take a meditative mindset, allowing the stillness and pauses in life to lead me to those moments I find so moving. Through my photography I seek to distill the life that occurs in the pauses, the spiritually moving moments, and the continuation of the natural world into the conscious thought. The world will always continue, despite the motion of humanity.

Artist Bio

I grew up in a world of art and color.  The women in my family have always been artists in their own mediums and continue to encourage art.  Early on I found a love for photography, the mindfullness of composing an image and sharing that connection with the world pushed me to practice more and more.  The paints and pastels of my Mothers art brought out my love of color, the shapes and glazes in my Grandmothers art returns you to the earth and its textures.  I used photography to share these influences of color and earth.

I live today in Ellicott City close to the nature I love.  I frequently kayak, hike, and camp in the area and beyond.
