I am an artist who loves the faces of people, the eyes are truly “the window of the soul”. I have studied many styles, yet the one thing that fascinates me the most is color. No matter how much I work and play with it I am always surprised by the combinations and intensities. I have a tendency to photograph and paint people of color. One reason is the rich and vibrant color combinations in the skin tones. I was raised in WY, but have lived around the United States, including Tucson, AZ; Washington DC; New York City, San Francisco, CA; and Uganda, Africa for 3 months volunteering. While living in Washington DC, the “artist” in me came alive. I moved to NYC and started attending the School of Visual Arts where I got my BA in Illustration. Next I started working on my MFA in San Francisco where I attended Academy of Art College and worked on my MFA. Moving back to NYC, I pursued my love of photograph and painting for 7 yrs. My travels have included Egypt, South Africa and Uganda, Africa. While traveling abroad, I had the honor of photographing a number of people. Many of the children and people live in poverty stricken conditions. Hopefully I have done some justice in photographing the beauty and wonder of these great people.
