Wake up! That was the call to action I heard as a result of the pandemic and an increasingly divided planet. What is happening? My answer was to create, respond and document what I saw. A form of alchemy. My eye is captivated by authentic emotion and behavior of urban street life. It is high stakes theater. It is raw, genuine, urgent, unfiltered and revealing. Even in these extreme circumstances, the human spirit is present, resilient and beautiful. Like Andy Warhol or a War Photographer, I am a recorder, a witness. As a creative, I love to work within the themes of portraiture, sexuality, the figure, form, celebrity, performance and abstraction. I studied Studio Arts in Rome and received a BFA in Photography from the University of Washington.
