Art and photography have always played a large part in my life. I work solely in black and white with large format cameras. Photography has become the primary method of expressing my creative vision. As an artist, I have always been interested in the human form and its many interpretations.

Through my lens I seek to capture the elegance and natural beauty of the female form. My images are studies in light and form, which blend formal and sensual qualities, radiating the individuality of my subjects through their emotion-laced gestures. I feel my images have captured a warmth inner beauty with a distinct elegance.

I use traditional techniques, including a large format view camera with century old lenses. The process of making prints is as important to me as the practice of creating photographs. I chose platinum-palladium as a medium for its distinct vintage quality and archival properties. Platinum images reveal shadows and dark values beautifully.
