Statement

“No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissastifaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” - Martha Graham

I am a self taught photographer and digital artist living and working in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  Through the years, I've bounced from one type of photography into another fairly steadily.  I started with flowers and landscapes, then quickly moved into lifestyle and boudoir, and finally found my home in alternative, dark beauty, and horror.  I love the juxtaposition of sinister and innocuity and because of it, my work typically features children in controversial and thought-provoking settings.  My sense of humour is relatively dark and superficially, I create from an inherently selfish need to make myself laugh.  There's not a single piece that a punchline isn't hidden within; even if it's hidden within the fact someone's viewing it at all.  That said, on a deeper level, there's an insistent drive to connect to others and ultimately, my passion lies in evoking emotion - whether it's my own or the viewers'.
