My photography styles are primarily - street, minimal, and abstract. Inspired by photographers Stephen Shore and Vivian Maier, I find beauty in simplicity.
I graduated from college with a degree in cytology and worked in a laboratory for 14 years. With the use of a microscope, I analyzed and diagnosed specimens for diseases. I left the cytology field in 2013 and focused on my passion for art.
My abstract paintings are created from select photographs or expressed with a narrative element. Many paintings have cellular elements that correspond to the cytology sciences - for example, cancers and infections.
In the midst of selling my work in 2018, I was diagnosed with DCIS - non-invasive breast cancer. My recovery from a bilateral mastectomy wasn't a painful process, instead, it was a path of self-discovery.
My photographs and paintings can be purchased online and art galleries in St. Louis.
