Since an early age, I was fascinated by The Arts. I looked at my uncle in amazement as he played with his enormously huge and shiny new camera. It had all the bells and whistles. It was then that I knew I wanted to be a photographer.
While in High School, my art teacher inspired my creativity and did not allow me to settle for the ordinary and encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone so I could be more innovative. I went on to drawing, painting and making clay sculptures that were exhibited in a year-end art displays. She taught me patience and perseverance. In college I was exposed to African Art which led me to explore and immerse myself in everything it had to offer. This had a profound lifelong influence on my work.
Life took me on a journey into healthcare. This experience along with my other influences has made me into the person I am today. I strive to always give my very best. I believe that every person who steps in front of my camera has a story to tell. My photography will give their loved ones something they will cherish forever.
I am a passionate photographic artist, with an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts. During my photographic education, I was mentored by outstanding Master Photographic Artists.
