My semi-abstract photography explores the beauty found at the intersection of nature and human-made objects. Harmony, presence, and perception are my themes. I am inspired by the immediacy of texture and movement, the play of light on natural surfaces, and by capturing spontaneous, unaltered moments in time.
I embrace the impermanence of each moment; my photography uses no double images nor retouching. My unaltered raw images explore new visual perspectives by seeking refractive and reflective viewpoints. My work captures the evanescence of light and movement, bringing a moment of presence to the viewer.
I began showing my art in 2017 and my work has been chosen for 29 exhibitions to date. I was selected for the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture Ethnic Artist Roster, and to the EAFA Public Art Program. My goal is to see with new eyes and speak with a new voice through art, by pursuing my love for photography.
