I have always been an artist at heart. Even as a child I approached the world with a deep curiosity. Days were spent running in the woods & sand piles around our home, barefooted and braids in my hair. Always discovering, creating, problem solving. Nights were spent scribbling away in my journal, pouring out my words.
I process internally, often feeling too quiet when I could not match a theatrical performance to that inner swirl of emotions. Now I have embraced my calm demeanor as a blessing, a way to be a thoughtful and conscious observer. A way of feeling my way through the world, and extending a space for real heartfelt conversation.
I am constantly moving towards what motivates me to move and create. Chasing sparks has meant a career in chemical engineering to artist residencies in the North Cascades of Washington, to living and working from a camper for a year with my partner, Rich.
Rich is my person to call home; the resting place for my ever moving, ever creating mind. He pours compassion into everything he does, and there is simply no other human I would want to walk through life alongside.
I find my grounding in relationships; rooted by connections. I believe there is so much power and beauty in our shared experiences. People openly revealing to one another how messy and flawed, yet undeniably amazing this life is. I view my photography as a dance between these intimate moments, both ordinary and the sacred.
