Life’s’ uniqueness and beauty surrounds us, waiting to be unleashed, revealed and enjoyed, especially when you step onto the path less travelled.
I was given my own first camera when I was 11 by my grandparents. Before the end of high school, I knew I wanted to be a Photographer and head off to New York.
That changed when I decided to head out to Banff for a winter of skiing, only to make that home for 14 years. During that time, I had the privilege of working as the Assistant Photographer at the Banff Center and having my first solo show.
Shortly after I moved to British Columbia, I put my camera down and creative aspirations to raise my family on my own.
The kids are grown and off travelling the world and I came to a space and place in my life where I couldn’t just ‘work’ at a ‘job’, chase money or do things that were not aligned with my Soul.
Actually, I went through the Dark Night of the Soul, or rather Ego as I like to call i!
I realized my Soul wanted to creatively express as the artist in me was emerging.
I slowly updated my skills into digital when I trained as a Raw For Chef and started a food blog and created recipe books.
Since then, I have played with and learned different types of Photography and Photoshop, learning and expanding.
Then when I found Impressionistic or ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) I fell in love.
I love going beyond the linear, capturing a moment in time outside of the norm.
And entering into the world of Encaustic will also be shown soon and combing them.
I love diving deep into the unknown, as I have a love for creativity, art, psychology, quantum physics, spirituality and alternative health.
My Photography & Art keeps evolving over time., as I do.
For me, Photography is not just a means to an end; it can be a transformative storytelling tool that expresses a curiosity, creativity, imagination, an awareness and a conversation with Creation.
I love spending my time being creative and yes still in the kitchen too, having deep conversations about life and the cosmos, cultivating authentic connections with people, travelling, going to markets, hanging at the beach, volunteering at The Ranch helping dogs, teaching Yin Yoga, and just chilling in a hammock!
