Over ten years ago, I decided to follow my heart and study photography. I started with developing film and have since moved into the digital darkroom. The computer and its infinite software tools allow me to experiment and create art that is thoughtful, diverse and original.
I use state-of-the-art technology to create images that transcend the ordinary into the extraordinary.
I hope to create iconic images that will revitalize the dialogue about photography in the hope that it can relate in not only our political and social topics, but also in every aspect of our lives.
I also have a passion for oil painting, particularly portraits.
As an independent curator and art consultant for over ten years, I have selected, created, designed and hung exhibits for Anne Arundel Community College, BOFA DC (Best of Fine Arts), The Millennium Arts Salon, LOGLO Art Basil Miami, The Graham Collection, The Black Artists of D.C., and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. In each of these exhibits, I was responsible for the overall design, production, installation and maintenance of the show.
I have exhibited in seven one-woman shows, and in over twenty premier gallery exhibits on the East Coast.
As a freelance photographer, I have contracted and volunteered for many local organizations and businesses throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
I created Different Eyes Photography Club, an after-school and summer program to teach local elementary school children to observe and appreciate the world around them using the art of photography as the inspiration.
I have had the opportunity to photograph and teach photography workshops to children in Havana, Cuba, in which the results of this work was exhibited at the Charles Sumner School Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Intercultural Museum and Art Gallery in Baltimore, Maryland.
I am currently teaching summer courses at Creating Communities arts organization of Annapolis and Kids in College at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, MD
