I do my best to photograph what I see. I’m not conceptual, I’m interested in feeling, color, composition, and light. And my intent is to be able to recreate all of that with my camera. It’s straightforward, and not complicated.
My work has been influenced by Sally Mann, Paul Strand, Helen Levitt, Alfred Stieglitz, Mark Rothko, Milton Avery and others. It’s also been influenced by growing up in Brooklyn, spending time in North Eastern Canada, having a family of artists, and traveling.
I received my BA from Bard College in Art History, and then after working as a graphic designer, went back to school for Photography at Art Center College of Design.
I live in Seattle, WA with my husband and son and take a lot of pictures. I’m also currently working on a photo memoir of my childhood house in Brooklyn.
