Artist Statement

Education:  2005 School of Visual Arts, New York, NY Bachelor of Fine Art, Photography Artist's Statement: The evening hours are lonely and eerie, yet captivating at the same time.  I try to accentuate the light in my photographs because it is mysterious and beautiful.  We have chosen to light up our world for practical reasons, yet in doing so we have taken the most mundane places and turned them into magical stages for the unknown.  Light is very powerful. It can set a scene or change a mood. When I go out to photograph I search for those perfect moments of mystery and drama.  I try to invoke the feeling that something is about to happen or just had; and that something or someone was once there but only a presence is left.
