I have been in the graphic design & art direction ﬁeld for over 20 years and I like to say art has always been my shadow. As a child, I would love taking pencil to paper and sketch or pick up a brush and paint. It gave me a sense of calm and allowed me to dive deep into my imagination. In 2005 I started my interest in photography when my daughter was born and I continue to learn, study and research its science and craft. I’ve been a professional photographer for 12 years with an interest in architecture, interiors, landscapes and nature. Photography as an art form is not just an image but an idea created in the mind and captured. It is truly brought to life when printed on a medium and ﬁnished in a frame and displayed.
As a native Charlestonian, I have a strong connection to the Lowcountry and all it oﬀers. The experience I feel when I’m photographing the forests, marshes, creeks and ocean along with the sounds and smells it provides, brings me back to the calmness I experienced as a child allowing me to focus on my imagination. I’m truly blessed to be able to share my Lowcountry experiences through my artwork and hope they are enjoyed by many.
