For quite sometime I thought of myself as a closet creative. To me, that meant I wasn’t officially an artist. As of late, I am out of the closet creatively. I feel like an artist each and every day! I am captivated by the image stories around me. This has me taking way too many photographs! Self taught, utilizing a simple point and shoot camera… i work intuitively. My image-capturing style is described as organic, up close, authentic and personal. They say that my images are telling. I seek opportunities to tell an image tale through my photography. Tell me more about your project – I can’t wait to bring expression to it.
