My artistic expression comes from seeing and capturing that which is often overlooked in a way that demonstrates the wonder, beauty, and connectedness of everything around us.
Over the years I have come to value art as a way to slow down and connect with the world around me, to find meaning and value in places and subjects that are often overlooked, and to remind myself of my own place in this world. I often spend hours in a single location observing and photographing as the world unfolds around me, revealing new layers of life, wonder, and beauty.
What began in adolescence as a self-motivated practice of finding and creating unique and pleasing compositions has grown over the years, transitioning into a means of managing and expressing my battle with anxiety and depression, and more recently, to a means of addressing large-scale inaction by empowering myself and others through hopefulness and positive change.
I use only minimal post-processing, as I find most of my artistic expression comes from seeing and composing images in-camera.
