|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 I make will resonate with every person, but by creating photographs which are intrinsically 'me', I am better able to avoid trends, have only one person to blame on the days when I'm convinced I'm in the wrong field and ultimately and most importantly, stay true to my vision.
