My background and approach are varied: artist, photographer, educator, and community worker. The experience and familiarity in each discipline have been mutually influential, for grant-funded programs, public arts or commissioned projects.
My photographs are exhibited in galleries, hospitals, therapeutic venues, swimming pools, spas, universities, and public and private collections.
I have served as a photographic educator at the University of Maryland, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Duke University, and currently provide private tutorials and portfolio critique.
As an educational therapist and parent educator, I bring this experience to my outreach projects incorporating photography as a tool for creative discussion and self-reflection. My previous work at the NC Wright School Re-Education Center, the NC Memorial Hospital Department of Psychiatry, and the Montgomery County Department of Public Instruction informs my public arts and advocacy work.
As an editorial photographer, my clients include the Washington Cancer Institute, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Epilepsy Foundation, and the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.
I have a lifelong love of creating portraiture for constructing memories, rendering the figure as art abstraction within the landscape. My current work addresses the concept of home, serving local organizations that serve the elderly, children, and families.
