A photographer of the fantastical, my images offer the viewer a portal to another world; an ethereal, archetypal, dream-filled realm where the impossible becomes possible. I see the world in a mythic, symbolic way. Things are rarely what — or all — they appear to be.
While other photographers employ entire teams to bring an image to life, I am a one-person show. I painstakingly make my costumes and props by hand. I scout all my locations personally. I shoot without assistants. I complete every step of my lengthy post-production process entirely on my own. And I do all of this on a shoestring budget.
What makes my working style all the more challenging is the fact that I suffer from a neurological disease called myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.), which causes constant pain and exhaustion. But it also fuels my art and drives me to create.
