As a photographer of women I am drawn to divinely feminine themes including truth, archetypes, vulnerability, restitution and expressing soul growth stories through photography.
A current theme in my work is transition. My personal life is being reflected in my work as it’s unraveling and expanding. I began as a portrait photographer and am intentionally moving in the direction of concept, where I can more purposefully craft the story allowing my shadow truths to come into their own light and be seen.
I believe there is a divine connection between a woman and her environment and I often find I am photographing women, “in situ” or “in the place of becoming.” In my own discoveries with turning the camera towards myself, becoming often begins underground.
Contrasts appeal to me in most forms, the juxtaposition of shadow + light, earth + fire, sound + fury – these are not separate but integrated within the whole of each one of us. I believe that what is held as sacred and what is felt as gritty are one entity and not dichotomy. In my creative work this is expressed as the very flame of divine expression.
