I am a photographic artist driven by an obsession to make sense of her environment. Using traditional black and white techniques, Alternative Processes, as well as digital methods, I attempt to tangibly express the innumerable circumstances that both plague and stimulate me.
I believe that all Art derives from aspects of the self, be that personal experience, reactions of the heart, or the dark and light places in the mind. Everything that an artist creates can be traced back to a profound experience in their life. This is where true inspiration lies.
I feel, “As an artist, I make Art in response to me, my world. It allows me to regulate and to elucidate. That the viewer is able to connect on any level is truly wondrous and satisfying.”
I continue to exhibit both nationally and internationally and I am currently Program Director Studio Art and Assistant Professor of Photography and Digital Imaging at University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
