Artist Statement
An old superstition says that photography steals the soul, likely because the print portrays so much more than appearance. Photographs reveal emotion and hidden truths. It is that inner world or spirit which interests me the most. I use my lens to uncover what is hidden. 

As a trained ballet dancer, I find motion depicted in an image to be an interesting element that defines and reveals. Longer exposures capture more time and movement from the subject. In turn, sometimes I ‘dance’ just a bit with the camera to express my presence as the photographer. A dialogue develops and a genuine abstract photograph emerges presenting a deeper look into the soul of the scene. When I combine transparent images creating a ‘conceptual film’ on a single frame, the print becomes more than a window to the soul in which you can peek. It becomes an open door into which you can step and continuously explore.
