In the portraits of others I find the loose threads of my inner self.

 

I approach portrait interviews with both a journalistic curiosity and an artistic sensibility. My portraits aim to convey the context

and emotion that only a one-on-one interaction with another human being, however brief, can create. 

I focus on narratives of actual experiences. I use my research background on memory  reconstruction techniques to conduct interviews that bring real people's stories to life, to help others connect with the makers of beauty in a deeper and more intimate way. Collecting  and sharing their stories is my way to celebrate and bring insight into the creative process. I can think of a greater purpose in life than to share craft, beauty, insight and humanity. 

If you have a story to tell, I am all ears ;-)​
