ARTIST STATEMENT

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to exploration and utilized photography to document the world. My photographs hold memories gathered in my observations and highlight complexities of everyday surroundings. 

I pursue this form of art inspired by the power images hold in communication and their ability to invite an emotional response. As a photographic artist, my goal is to visually capture and tell a story that evokes feelings and draws the viewer into the scene. 

In the process, I allow composition, colour, form to have an equal importance in each image, as they resonate with the dynamics of the scene.
