I am a Canadian-born professional photographer and artist who now resides in Farmington, Minnesota for most of the year and in the Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada for the rest. 

 

I have been taking photos for most of my life, but in 2014 I finally attained my Degree in Photography from Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, Minnesota. 

 

Originally, my attention to detail helped me to find beauty everywhere through the lens of my camera. From reflections in water droplets to landscapes and everything in between, I was able to capture my vision in a photograph. I truly enjoy capturing anything, so one day it may be nature and the next it's people, or product, but no matter what my subject is, I take pride in whatever I am working on in the moment.
 

In 2018, I started to use my creative vision and knowledge to express myself through my images by digitally enhancing my original photographs to bring out more vibrant colors and to create more lines and curves. With the combination of the beauty around me, the feelings that come from within, and a little imagination, it brings my photos to a new place. By doing this I put a bit of twist on reality or I completely change them to something unknown and abstract. I've been told by many at my shows that looking at them takes them to a happy place.  

 

Printing them on high white gloss metal, canvas or greeting cards, depending on the subtleties of the image, is what really brings each one to life. The medium truly is the final ingredient to what makes my work unique and special.
