I use photography as a means of measuring and marking my place in the world, documenting the numinous energies that connect and flow through us. I received my first camera when I was six and have always been interested in capturing what I feel when I look through the lens as well as reflecting how I see the world . As a black woman making images, perception and reflection are central to my work, which encompasses portraiture and photographic abstraction. I am a reluctant convert to digital photography, and I continue to work to find my visual voice in this medium because analog is my true love. I live and work in the state of Rhode Island and I have a B.A. in English from the University of Virginia and an M.A. in Studio Art from New York University.
