Artist / Personal Statement
There is always more. This is a truth that motivates and draws me forward as a person and as an artist. It is a continuous inspiration, as well as a common theme in my artwork. It compels me to take on the role of an explorer in life. If there is more, than I cannot stay where I am. I must place my heart in a posture to grow, and my hands in a position to create.

Life is full of opportunities to connect, listen and love one another. As a photographer, I love getting to know my clients - what they love and what they're passionate about. It is truly an honor to witness and capture life, those precious fleeting moments, the spontaneous wonder of a child or laughter and love present on a long-awaited wedding day.

In all that I see, whether visible or hidden, there is a glimmer of light. There is a wisdom, strong and noble, resting in the most simple and humble of places. There is a hidden glory, patiently waiting to burst forth. There is a joy present, even in the deepest of sorrows. There is more to every story, even ones that seem to stop short. These are realities that my heart sees and spills over into visual expressions, such as painting, photography and drawing.
