A San Francisco-based photographer, I have been creating images my entire life, my passion since childhood. I attended the San Francisco Art Institute and later earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of San Francisco, both of which expanded and deepened my awareness, focusing the desire to express myself artistically through photography.
My photography focuses on the interplay between reality and imagination. My goal is to capture a glimpse of that which surrounds us but which we often only vaguely sense and do not clearly see.
Of the various subjects I am drawn to, I’m especially aware of an essence in flora, finding both a unique materiality and an underlying universal presence. The cycle of seed to blossom to bloom to seed again is a profound metaphor of the powers that impel all life. To capture a moment in the life of a flower is to reveal a hidden reality, an image that evokes recognition of the ethereal in the natural.
