“As an artist and photographer I believe every voice counts.  I choose to take a position where scientific research is paramount and the visual occupies as documentary evidence.  I have attempted to use my camera as a way to talk about the landscape, our connection to environment, and the changes upon earth.

As cancer survivor, the artist see nature as a way to connect to a primal part of herself. “I feel as if I belong in the pictures I take… There is an attachment to environments that struggle to survive, like I did.  I simply feel connected in ways that words can never describe.”
