Learning to see—it is what photography teaches me to do every day.
To notice color, line, light and shape. To indulge in my own ideas of mood, harmony and sensuality.
Photography invites me to be surprised by the everyday world, and to be playful with it.
In addition to practicing photography, I am an arts educator (MA Art Education). Teaching the visual arts is very exciting for me, as I design interdisciplinary curricula to promote deep, lasting understanding of concepts, ideas, processes and techniques while guiding students to cultivate visual literacy. An advocate for the arts, I also serve on my city’s arts commission. I live in California with my family.
