I am a photographer and writer telling stories in images and words. My images convey the intimacy, joy, human resilience, and natural wonder that I see all around. I am a lifelong artist, writer, and equestrian. 


My work falls into three areas.

Fine Art images are my story. They are the lens through which I make sense of the world, both it's shimmering beauty and it's bleeding raw edges. Many of these images are available as fine art archival or alternative process prints.

Documentary images tell someone else's story, and are available individually, or as part of a written story.


Portraits are your story. Portraits are by commission, and are created especially for you.
