Thank you for visiting my portfolio!

My fine art portfolio is all about beauty. Beauty powers me. 

I find it all around me but no where as abundantly as in the natural world. It’s always my starting point.

I use the golden rays of California sunshine paired with rich, vibrant colors to create images full of life.

But, I also use darkness to shape images. It give them depth, stirs the imagination and gives them a delicious dramatic feel.

I’ve always thought that color must add something to an image if it’s going to stay. If it doesn’t, I strip the image down to its roots – black and white.

No matter what I’m creating, my goal is always to add more beauty to the world through my photography and short films. 

Every month I share the beauty I find all around me in my email newsletter “Found Beauty”. My newsletter subscribers also get first dibs on my new fine art pieces and any special pricing I may be offering. If you’d like to join me on my quest for beauty, please sign up to receive it!

As always, if you have any questions about my photography, short films, fine art portraiture or products, please feel free to get in touch with me.
