Artist Statement

I began my love of photography as a young child.  My father was a photography enthusiast and I became enthralled with the idea of capturing a story through images when he would photograph me as I would tell him stories that I would make up – you could almost see my imaginary worlds through his lens in my facial expressions. I was hooked. Telling stories through my lens has become the hallmark of my creative process, be it in a series of images or in a single landscape.

 

My choice in subjects for my art is influenced by my health and my need to social distance, even long before the coronavirus pandemic. In 2016, I was finally diagnosed with a genetic immunodeficiency related to Bubble Boy Syndrome, called Common Variable Immunodeficiency.  My photography provides me with meditative healing through affording me a creative and contemplative outlet for the stressors of daily life, the intensities of chronic illness and my day job as a rocket engineer.

 

My goal for my art is to ultimately bring the mission of restoration and healing to others. I want people who view my art to also find that art can be healing for them as well – be it through the enhancement of their environment, the story it tells or inspiration to be creative themselves.
