My City - 11.jpg

I am a visual artist, passionate about documenting an experience. As a photographer and painter, I use art to convey meaning and tell a story about what I see.

My work reflects my enthusiasm for a unique, varying range of subjects. I am inspired by details, color and character, sometimes revealed in unconventional spaces. I am drawn to capturing sensitive elements in nature as well as the elegance of architecture, the candor of street life and the intimacy of sacred spaces.
