“I am a native of Washington State and I have a passion for capturing and sharing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest through photography and stone carving.

Art has been a large part of my life from the beginning.  I come from a family of artists and have been surrounded by creativity in many forms.

As a child, I started in clay, using it to rehabilitate my hands after reconstructive surgeries. I progressed to mixed media sculpture and later discovered stone carving.  I like to carve away the stone and find what’s inside.

I have been taking my own photos since the age of 5yrs old when my mom gave me my first disposable camera.  Photography is a way for me to capture a moment in time.  Most of my images have little to no editing.  My goal is to show as much of what I see as possible.

Through these mediums I have been able to share my unique perspective and personal experiences and enable others to gain insight about how I perceive the world.

Enjoy!!”
