I feel so lucky to be a photographer and to have found my passion and calling in life.
I decided I was going to be a photographer at 16, and that’s over 20 years ago, which is crazy to me!
I’ve been growing so much as an artist lately and finding ways to express what I’m going through in my art is something new to me. I think over the last 10 years of my life here in Los Angeles, it’s been all about survival. I’ve compromised so much of myself to be where I am today and it took everything I had to give sometimes to stay above water. There has been struggles, death and pain, but also love, growth and rebirth. It’s been a long time since I attempted to express myself through my art and it has not been until recently that I have finally come to the place where I want to be fully open, transparent. I want to create intentional art, art that heals my soul and takes me deeper into the depths of my humanity. I want to step into my darkness, sit in it, feel it, and just be with it, no judgment, no stories, just peace.
As women, I think we bite of more than we can chew, then we then have a habit of making ourselves wrong for not being able to complete the impossible tasks we set out to conquer daily. There is a moment we all fall a part.
I’m so very interested in knowing more about that. I want to understand more where that breaking point is for all women, what are the commonalities and how do I find new ways communicate to effectively what I need, so I don’t fall apart.
Creating a nude series is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile! Shooting nude figures in nature is something that seems so natural to me. It’s the two things that have been constant for the last 20 years I’ve been shooting and it’s about time I start putting a series together!
There will be lots more to come and soon I will have a home for these to be purchased!
