I am a Canadian photographer based in Ottawa. I came to photography years after I had studied drawing and painting in art school, and it has only been with the camera that I have found the non-verbal means of self-expression.
I am drawn to making stories about people yet consider myself an introvert. Periods of silence are necessary. So, too is movement.
I change my opinions often enough yet hold fast to values that are important to me. This I learned from my father, but sadly only came to realize the depth of his influence after he had died.
As the poet Walt Whitman proclaimed, “I contain multitudes.” I use that to excuse discrepancies.
Photography speaks for me when words fail. I prefer to let the images suggest their meaning to whoever is looking at them. Read them in your own voice: there is no right, or wrong.
