Waiting for that moment when it suddenly all dissolves into this transcendence where the ordinary becomes extraordinary….then to click the shutter.
Fond memories of playing with paints as a child in my grandmother’s art studio overlooking the Pacific ocean spurred me to find an outlet of my own. Since then, I have continuously pursued my interpretive vision of the world, whether it be as a musician, dancer or artist. In my 20’s, after a year of wandering through Europe looking for my place in life, I returned home to study Fashion Design & Illustration while interning at the Los Angeles County Museum in Costumes & Textiles Department. Working as a fashion stylist in Los Angeles was a great opportunity to learn photography skills from many fashion photographers. Moving to Taos in 1991, I studied painting with several fine art teachers looking for my preferred form of expression. But it was while working as Creative Director & in-house fashion photographer for Blue Fish Clothing Design Company, that I discovered my own love for the immediacy of the camera’s eye.
I find my muse in that which exists around me, of whatever sparks my imagination and sends me on my way to that place of creative satisfaction…….inspired by color…shape…texture… and an alternate version of what we think we are really seeing.
