Artist statement

Growing up along the coast of Lake Michigan, I have always been fascinated by the water. I used to sit and study the lake for hours. It’s easy to see the influence the lake has had on my work. I can never resist toting my camera along whenever I head in that direction. Lake Michigan is beautiful, serene, awesome, and terrifying all at the same time. To me, art is the same way, every project is an adventure in and of itself.

“Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where
I have been that should be of interest.”
Georgia O’Keefe
