Artist Statement:

To me, taking pictures is all about movement—capturing the essence of motion, the human spirit in bodily form, and distilling this aliveness—where it comes to rest in the frame of a single, still photograph.Storytelling is my art form and my talent. The digital image is my canvas and the human body is my palette. I use the language of bodies in motion to show vulnerability, value, capability and power. 
I find fascination in whirling female and male models, glistening nudes, brightly colored fabrics or translucent, melting snowflakes. My ultimate goal is to represent a vision of my insight and my life experiences.
