I am a visual artist who moved from painting to theatrical lighting design and now to photography. I am fascinated by the ways light reveals the casual, intimate moments of ordinary life.
When I shoot, I feel as if I am in a conversation with life. If I move too fast, am distracted, or have specific expectations I miss it.
Some of my recent projects have to do with capturing images that evoke kinesthetic emotional responses. During one of my camera walks I came upon a house that made me feel pushed away emotionally, as if the inhabitants were in hiding. Another series came out of winter hikes where I found that ice and its edges particularly resonated with me. I am influenced by poetry, like this line from a Julie Hungiville Lemay poem “I listen to the sound of the water, the echo of ice letting go.”
