Artist Statement

Statement about her work

I have a background in design and have always appreciated the beauty around me. Photography has been a hobby for many years and it was a natural complement to putting brush to canvas. Some of my favorite subjects are macro images of flowers that have contrasting light and shadow to make them so much more beautiful. Inspired by being surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean for most of my life I have started trying to capture it’s power and grace.
