Artist Statement: Growing up in a region known for its DIY culture and a desire to live wild, the Northwest has distinctly shaped my creativity and photography. As both a commercial and conceptual image maker, when photographing fashion, I have been committed to making statements that imply an expressive casual style focused on defining a tone of confident spirited femininity, with hints at rebelliousness.  I tend to work with models whom I select based on them embodying those traits, and are also makers in their own right.  Collaboratively we improvise, and subltely toy with the viewers comfort zone while bringing into question what is seductive.
