Grace - noun - elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion, or action.

Inspiring and achieving grace through photography is my ultimate objective. As a child in the Southern California countryside, I was raised in the presence of horses, airplanes, dance, hard winds and daring light.

My journey with photography began there and that passion eventually led me to the world-renowned Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. There, I further refined my camera techniques, angles and the art of film manipulation. As I grew, I examined digital photography, medium format and fashion design. My passion became a skill and I earned a B.F.A. in photography.

Where I am today…

Now, as a professional, I spend much time philosophizing about human nature and behavior and what I can learn from it through my craft - and what I can say in response. I believe firmly in the artistic use of the camera and the inherent art of the subject I'm photographing. It is a team effort. Collaboration is incredibly important to me. Together is how I hope to explore the beauty of body, movement, fashion and soul…and achieve grace.

Most recently, I have successfully married my two loves - photography and fashion design. I’m now making wearable art: true one-of-a-kind original clothing, three-dimensional art, of which I'm very proud.

I never sit too long in one place, but always seem to return to my roots. I enjoy working with other artists and, in fact, thrive on it. I’m always looking for new and innovative ways to bring beauty into the world. I am one that has to create. I love turning nothing into something. With my photography I don't just take a picture and call it a day. I’m always pushing the process. Whether it is what I create to photograph, the exploration and push and pull of life in the dark room, or the work I do in front of the computer…I’m always challenging myself to be better at what I do.

Grace - I strive to find it for my clients in each and every project. Let’s strive for it together.
