For as long as I can remember, I have always been interested in art and photography. After receiving my first film camera as a teenager, photography quickly became a favorite medium. I attended The Cleveland Institute of Art and received a BFA in photography in 2003. While in school, my work evolved into an emphasis on a photojournalistic style of portraiture culminating with a thesis project documenting my sister’s fight with liver failure and utilizing self portraits to explore concepts of death.
After the surgery, I decided to move to Atlanta where I ended up meeting my husband and starting our life together. Two children later, we have made our home here.
