I cannot go a day without my feet touching mother earth with my face turned toward her elements. Paradoxically, it is what energizes me most, and where I find my peace. I have traveled to a myriad of locations throughout the world to explore their various terrains and cultures. I have sought opportunities to explore this state on an intimate and tactile level.

In my exploration, I have observed diverse landscapes and the manifold activities that these spaces inspire. My focus is on the rock climbers who merge with these spaces in a way that seems to pay homage to their wildness. Observing closely the topography and the visitors recreating here, I can share my passion and deep appreciation for this environment with the viewer. Aiming to illustrate the power, beauty and energy of the land.

I have an MFA in Photography and an MEd. in Art Education.
