My Artist Statement
I discovered photography at the age of seventeen and it opened up a world from which I often felt detached from, not a part of. Photography became my a voice... a means with which to express myself and my hitherto unspoken point of view. My photographs are about me, they express who I am, how I feel, and how I see the world...my point of view.
I hope that my photographs touch you, awaken something in you or carry you to a place of comfort and reflection and perhaps introspection. A place to wander...
My aim is to record the dimensions of life, the living, the objects and the colours; the beginning, the end and all the contours of our journeys. The internal, the external and how all pieces depend on each other, our interdependence. When you see the photos people not only see the folds and sharp edges but they see and I hope feel............when I am at my best feels embraced........touched!
It's difficult or near impossible to be objective about "my" photographs, they are not mine!
