Being a native Californian and lifelong resident, the Pacific Ocean greatly influences my creativity. I’m captivated by the lines and motion found in these coastal surroundings. These two elements of lines and motion are the yin and yang of my imagery as lines represent stability and order, while motion represents change.
Because of our changing environment, I’m currently attempting to capture how life is evolving. My seascapes are shot with long-exposure pan photography. My wormholes and futurescapes are a result of a sense of wonder due to new discoveries in space exploration and a sense of fear due to changing weather patterns here on Earth.
I’ve also spent a great deal of time focusing on seabirds in flight, particularly their anatomy and mechanics. I’m drawn to the details found in their feathers, the symmetry of lines and overall geometry.
After receiving a B.A. in Art from San Diego State University, I briefly worked as a freelance photographer. Then my life took an unexpected turn - I became a standup comedienne, I performed across the country and beyond. In the early ’90’s, I also appeared on television with the likes of Johnny Carson and Bob Hope. However, I always felt happiest behind the camera, not in front of it.
