Artist's Statement

​

When I began to learn about digital photography, it proved to be an adventure that offered significant healing for stress and trauma.  Ten years later, I've continued a photographic path with deeper understanding of its impacts on mind, body and soul.  My hope is to acknowledge and explore these three interconnected aspects for deeper understanding.  I use photography to connect with my feelings, because understanding lived emotions can seem distant and unreal for me. Photographic pursuits assist me to connect with sensory experiences in the natural world; recognizing the body as human and mammal.  Photography also encourages me to open into a spiritual understanding, an area I am newly learning more about. 

​

While these artistic pursuits are centered in reflection and self-awareness, my purpose is also to share my work with others.  I believe it’s important to acknowledge photography as a therapeutic tool, and how this may connect to universal consciousness and greater well-being.

Statement about works in VERMONT SUMMER GROUP SHOW

​

In 2018, I graduated from a rigorous 2.5 year MSW program while working in medical and mental health.  During the summer after graduation, I decided to embark on two waterfall tours: one in Vermont and one in the Berkshires. I  believe that water is a powerful healing element for the mind-body-soul, and I believe that life's answers are found in the natural world, if we are able to listen.
