Artist Statement

I remember three piles of photographs on the living room floor of my childhood home. I held each one as if it were a gem—a priceless piece of family history. From then on, I was a photographer.   

Raised on a lake, where fences were non-existent, I had the ability to roam freely - I bring a sense of discovery and wonder into photographs of my family in the natural world. I photograph my children growing up, all the facets of womanhood and family roots.  The photographs we make today will be passed down generation to generation.  I have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, and will publish my first artist book, Sanctuary in the Wild in 2021.

If you wish to know more about my story and dive deeper, I invite you to check out a book I was interviewed in, “Thirty Before Thirty: 30 Q&As From Around The World On Life, Love, Travel” by Griselda Benavides
