“People often say that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.”
~ Salma Hayek
My favorite pictures include sensuality, emotion, and a hint of magic. Creating touches of fairytale adventure, bravery, and awe keeps me lost in the flow for days. I see the romance of life in the midst of the mundane.
At 16 years old, I was the youngest member ever accepted into the Watercolor Society of Oregon. I learned from some of the best nationally known jurors and my Mom, who was an artist and a teacher and owned a gallery on the Ashland plaza for 10 years. Since I became a full time professional photographer in 2008, my work has been published in “Spectacular Wineries of Oregon”, “Southern Oregon Magazine”, “Oregon Wine Press”, and on a variety of novel book covers and marketing materials. It is displayed on buses and permanently installed in Belle Fiore Estate and Vineyard’s wine tasting room.
My six years of full time study at SOU and PSU focused on International Marketing and Chinese, so I understand your commercial photography and copy writing needs.
My goal is to level up beyond my region, expand my income, travel the world, blog, and make people feel beautiful wherever I go.
