I am a lover of all things art and the human condition. My first memories of art and the emotions it can make someone feel were as a child. My mother had taken me to a museum and I saw my first Salvador Dali painting. Even then through the eyes of my eight year old self I felt something greater than my own understanding. It moved me, my emotions, my vision, my perception, in a way that I knew I had to explore with every part of my being to express the love of all things art and human within me and around me.
I was in love with surrealism and the way it gave its own twist on my everyday life. I love conceptual photography because it is powerful to me, in that it allows both myself, as the artist, and the viewer to be carried away to another realm where there are endless possibilities. I love the emotion that a photograph can evoke. My conceptual photography is where I allow my dreams to become reality and my imagination to roam free.
In my travels as a Navy spouse, I found my format in expressing my passion for the world around me through the lens of a camera. The beach sunsets on Guam sprung my passion of capturing light and it soon turned to capturing the candid moments of those around me. I was so moved seeing the interlocking fingers of a loving couple holding hands or the glance of a bashful eye upon hopeful love between a couple. I then realized it was possible to capture an emotion and convey it in an everlasting form. As a mother of four, immortalizing my children's laughter was just the first of many possibilities of capturing all moments of joy through the art of photography. My continued life experiences, from the highs to the lows and everything in between, are a constant inspiration and drive behind my art and my vision.
