I began my career as an artist
as soon as my infant hands could grasp a pencil.
throughout my school days, all papers, homework assignments
and notes were covered in drawings, doodles and characters
(not always to the amusement of my teachers).
my first photograph (at 7 years old) was of a cow,
taken with a Vivitar Point ‘N Shoot camera while on a family camping trip.
today, armed with that magical cow photo memory,
I strive to create a balanced spontaneity with
each photo I take, and a relatable personality with each
character I paint.
moving to the california desert last year was a step towards connecting more with the external peace and quiet in order to reach deeper into my own internal peace and quiet. I have been painting the local flora and fauna with passion ever since.
whether it be painting, drawing, taking photos, being inspired by the weird beauty of the desert,
I am grateful for being able to express myself through my creativity.
