|Artist Statement:||"The thing that's important to know is that you never know. You're always sort of feeling your way." - Diane Arbus
I am an artist who uses a camera as a tool and though I live by the idea that, "Fortune favors the prepared...", it is quite often the images that spring from spontaneity, that I become most fond of. Not every image of mine will never resonate with every person, but I don't make photographs to follow trends, I make photographs that are intrinsically me.
If even one person is moved by my work and I am lucky enough to hear about it, it is then when I am gently reminded just how powerful an image can be and for that I am always thankful.
