Artist Statement

I like to seek out the simple beauty in the day to day. My slice-of-life photographs try to capture the poetic in the mundane. I have recently been interested in expanding on digital image-making and incorporating more hands-on techniques. My starting point in this endeavor has been creating a new series of lumen photographs
