I am the photographer, director, stylist, model, actress and editor for all my self portraits. Taking photos has always been a passion of mine. I find that I love to express myself using digital photography to create surreal-like images from my personal thoughts or imagination. If something is on my mind, I think about what it would look like in a picture. With a tripod or camera in hand, I dress up and photograph myself to escape my reality by taking on whatever idea, or thing I am trying to interpret. Whether it be a new favorite song, the way I look, or how something made me feel, it’s all about the process of putting it in a photo. Sharing and connecting with others online fulfills me in an incredible way. Many of my works are spontaneous with little awareness to what the image will look like until after completion.
In addition, I feel this kind of photography is my personal therapy as it may in turn be therapeutic to others. I find that the shy person I’ve always been is nowhere in sight. My hidden confidence awakens! I feel like I can conquer anything. I believe while some portraits show the genuine, multidimentional me, in others I do not see myself at all. Sometimes, I disappear. My photography is an important extension of me that I feel necessary to promote for the well-being of my sanity, future and creative growth. I am a graduate of Montclair State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Fine Arts
