In my semi-abstract photography I explore the tender beauty found at the intersection of nature and the human-made. I seek luminous moments of presence and balance. I am inspired by emotive, intimate, naturally abstract images of harmony and reconciliation. My artworks are visual poems imbued with feeling, memory, and grace.
I believe in the healing power of nature; my art is a statement of sensitivity to our environmental crisis. At the confluence of ecology and urban life lies a vivid still-point of connection and possibility. By creatively envisioning this balance, I seek a renewed sense of abundance.
My raw, single-capture photography uses no double images, layering, nor retouching. I embrace the impermanence and clarity of each moment. My fresh visual perspectives explore natural refractions and reflections in a new, vibrant viewpoint on photography.
Since embarking upon my art career in 2017 my work has been selected for 60+ exhibitions, with 14 solo shows and 6 awards. I was chosen for the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture Ethnic Artist Roster. My art presents stories of healing at the convergence of nature and the human-made, and shares evanescent moments of connection and beauty.
