Capturing the light is everything! As a photographer, painter and artist, it is always the light that I remember most about any location. The light of a person's smile, the sparkle in their eyes, the way the light reflects off the ocean...It is my inspiration. Its elusive quality can transform a figure or a landscape in just a matter of seconds. Using my gifts as a photographer to raise awareness and communicate needs in third world countries lights my soul. I am thankful to the companies who hire me to visually tell the brand story. My soul is at peace by the ocean and my fine art reflects the colors and feel of tranquil waters and the light that floats above.
