Mama, soul sister, human. Seeker of truth, shadows, soft light, and all the little things around me that might otherwise go unnoticed. Photographer.
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the masters; seek what they sought. Zen Wisdom
The moment I came across the Zen imperative to find my own path, I knew it was how I would go about living. Each and every human is a quirky, beautiful, broken in some places, patched up in others being. My way could not possibly be yours; yours is not mine. I strive to respect that with every breath I breathe out.
As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul… Hermes Trismegistus
Looking outward I see beautiful and ugly things in equal measure. Looking inward I see the same, but understanding that is the way of the world lets me allow my ugly parts to just be while I work to grow my better – kinder, creative, wildheart – self.
Fall seven times, stand up eight. Zen Wisdom
I use all of the above to define my every day as well as to breathe life into my photographs. I remind myself to live courageously. My camera is the best conduit I’ve found to face down my fears. It allows me to play, experiment, use my body, mind, and imaginative spirit to produce work that will become archival records of your life.
