"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most dazzling view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." – Edward Abbey
“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorothea Lange
Each of us views the world in our own unique way. In my photographs I try to capture how I felt right then, right there, in that moment, about what I was seeing. Big, bold landscapes leave me just as breathless as up-close, intimate shots. Sometimes I like to play around with abstract images, seeing if I can take something familiar and make it appear otherwise. But what I’m always seeking is a visual, external representation of an internal sensation.
I've never really liked labels, I am this, I am that. But in the interest of introducing myself, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, home makeover aficionado, movie buff, practicing yogi, and aspiring world traveler. I think that's a pretty good list for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
