I make photographs because I love to play with light and because I wouldn't survive without photography. I make photographs so I can listen deeply and communicate honestly and imagine wildly and feel that which I cannot name. I have a special passion for portrait photography and its precious intimacy and honesty. I struggle with anxiety and depression and making images has become a way to understand and work with these.
In addition to photography, I am a ceramic artist creating simple, comforting, functional pottery. I am also pursuing my doctoral degree in Depth Psychology with a focus on Community Psychology, Liberation Psychology, and Ecopsychology, from Pacifica Graduate Institute.
