Behind silence, subtle tensions arise and chaos pushes through the cracks. In photographing, I am observing and bearing witness to life; my own and others. I document and capture this self-exploration, drawing inspiration and insight from the process. I am intrigued by the indulgence of our imaginations as well as physical surroundings, and the relationships that exist in both worlds. The images provide a glimpse of the elevated awareness I have always felt and a quirky seductiveness emanating from an innate connection with the natural world. My images represent fleeting moments of calmness and quiet intensity. Although my work represents a personal and intimate experience of an individual artist, the emotions brought forth here are very much universal. By being vulnerable to imagination and memory, we are sharing the experience.
