My parents taught me to appreciate and be curious about food at a young age. This understanding has not only lead me into kitchens, fields and farms but also into my photography studio. I create to share this knowledge, express my enthusiasm and to inspire.
Food defines so much more than just being something to satiate our hunger. It is something we all know, we rely on it to live, we need it to survive. Yet as our lives have become more complicated and busy we have become more disconnected from our plates and in return less nourished physically and spiritually.
My photographs are a celebration of food's ability to nourish, strengthen and heal the body physically and spiritually. My art celebrates life and living things by focusing on vibrant colors, shapes and forms.
