how does inspiration move through you?
lately, like an unexpected storm. it happens when i find myself moved by things, people, events, art forms that I normally wouldn’t have predicted. for this reason, i don’t often seek it out anymore, i just try to keep my heart and mind wide open so i’m there to receive it. this method keeps me both inspired regularly, and calm in my center.
how do you embody your art?
i truly think the best artists are ones that are inseparable from their art. i am constantly looking at the world as something that needs to be documented, frozen in time for our grandchildren to see. from the most love-filled day in a couple’s life, to my father’s weathered hands working on a car, to trees, oceans, and mountains of this beautiful planet. nothing is safe from change, and honest photographs bring us perspective in our daily lives.
what lights you up, inside and out?
i truly live for moments when nature takes the breath out of me and leaves me in a state of awe. usually best seen from the seat of a motorcycle! i’m also deeply moved by familial love, and often find myself moved to tears by family relationships that aren’t even my own.
