Art is the unique work of a human being, work that touches another - Seth Godin
My strongest sense is that of light. Each and every day I am aware of how the light moves across our landscape, our walls, and our faces. This awareness leads to my photographic process of revealing and exploring my connection to and unity with this energy field. Through photography we bear witness to our reflection of reality and how we are participating with these connections. For me, photography helps to clarify my understanding and interpretation of each moment by acting as an agent for heightened perception.
Photography seems to have always been there for me. I started shooting in high school, carrying my camera along during my teenage explorations. After high school I attended Simon Fraser University, completing a B.Sc. in Biology. At this point I began working as a biologist throughout Oregon, Hawaii and British Columbia before cycling through Canada. At then end of this long journey I decided to move to New Zealand where I studied seabirds and wildlife management to earn an M.Sc. After several years working with seabird bycatch I moved to a small remote off-the-grid island known as Lasqueti that is located between the Mainland and Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Twelve years and two sons later we moved to beautiful Smithers, BC to spread our wings and explore the mountains and rivers.
