About Me

Traveling  smile
I have a festival in Bend, Oregon October 1-5.
I will also be swinging by Portland.

And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

I see the world in tones and colors.

I am a published and gallery displayed artist. The most important thing to me is art.
I fell in love with visual imagery while working as a graphic designer. I would describe my work as emotionally cinematic. I shoot mostly strong emotional pieces that may even be a bit dark or macabre but still feminine and beautiful. I like my work to let the viewer experience the emotion and let their imagination tell a story. This is what I do, this is how I feel, this is who I am.

I shoot digitally, and with film and also have started experimenting with wet plate. I am constantly trying to evolve my art to evoke my feelings into an image that will match the splendor in my head. Art is ever evolving and a beautiful challenge.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
~Edgar Allan Poe

As an artist I mainly shoot trade work. Being an artist is not making me rich (not with money, but rich in my soul) so I really cant afford to pay most models. I am always willing to to buy dinner, host, provide smiles and share my love for art. I like to work with models that also have a deep connection with art themselves.  If I print something I am try to make sure the model gets a print of what we shoot. I shoot the human form often and I am not trying to make you look "pretty" my work is raw and emotional and flawed. Most of my work is aimed at gallery work, and showing and hanging it.

I dont dream of what I can become tomorrow, I dream of what I will be today

If only we could pull out our brain and use only our eyes.
