5 Years of experience

I've always been very sentimental. There's something sacred to me about being able to capture a moment in time. Nothing will ever be exactly as pictured again.



Along with being an artist, I am someone who lives with a chronic illness. I'm lucky that my chronic illness brought me to art. In high school I took AP art but found myself unhappy with my photographs taken on DSLR, and happier with the look of the polaroids I took of friends in my free time. I fell out of love with photography. Looking back, I was editing my digital photographs to look grainy and as if they had been taken on a film camera.


After being diagnosed with a chronic illness and finding myself out of school with far too much time on my hands, I rediscovered photography in a new way. I invested in a film camera and it was over. I was in love. I always just tell people "film hits different" - the photos speak for themselves.
