Artist Statement:

I see the world through a viewfinder. When exploring far out places, I am never without camera. I have an affinity for beaches and the sea as it reminds me of my childhood and takes me away from “life” just for a while. Living in an ever-changing technologically driven world with our faces glued to screens and seeing the negative effects of industry on our earth, I aim to capture the natural beauty on this earth and to find art in our everyday. While I hope the images evoke feelings of happiness, joy, and peacefulness and to stir up some wanderlust, I also hope that they remind us that we must take care of our earth and not let pollution, technology and industry take over.
