Artist Statement

Growing up in a military family, change was inevitable. Consequently, place and belonging were never constant for me because my experience of home was temporary. I spent much of my childhood in Northern Canada around the 60th parallel.  Barren landscapes, remote communities, and scenes of the cold are the foundations of memories and often appear in my work. Through photography, I focus on nature, the built environment, and the local culture, while exploring themes of time and place, solitude, isolation, and identity.
