My interest in photography began as a young girl growing up in Johannesburg South Africa.The creativity and vibrance so abundant upon the African continent awakened within me a strong desire to document and capture the essence and soul of the place on film. After Immigrating to the States in ’93 photography was put on hold as I studied and worked in unrelated fields, but my interest was rekindled when the opportunity arose for me to study art and photography in Paris for a semester. Shortly thereafter my first daughter was born which further reestablished my love for the medium of photography, as I strove to document every milestone and capture the special yet fleeting moments of new motherhood.
I strive to capture soulful evocative images rich with emotion, and I aim to give expression to the threads of love that binds us together in our humanness.
