As a concerned photographer, my work explores the non-fiction realities of its subjects. While often intimate or quiet moments, the photographs provide a portal to larger issues. These include women, children, families, poverty, privilege, post conflict areas, and environmental justice.

In my studio practice color, tactility, and found materials are the focus of the collage work. The impulse to make something from minimal means is the space in which these works on paper are created.
