Artist Statement

 

 

Self-Portrait   2012

I was drawn to photography to record social and political changes that were happening around me and were forever altering my worldview.  Photography soon became my way to explore and deepen my understanding of the world, allowing me to get in close and interact with those whose values I shared.  

 

Currently I live in Sonoma county where I can focus on the beauty of the environment, its fragility in the wake of ignorant policies and society's continued resistance to social inequalities, racism, sexism and greed.
