I have spent my life in the country and am continuously inspired by the natural, rural, and historical surroundings of the Northeast. I like to capture the small details that might otherwise go unnoticed. Textures, the edge of a leaf, or the delicate structure of a petal all remind us of life's fleeting moments. In my landscapes, I like to evoke a sense of etherealness with a touch of nostalgia.
My work is greatly influenced by the turn of the century photographer, Wallace Nutting. His passion for the preservation of historical places and scenic landscapes was evident in his body of work. It's hard for one to look at his photographs and not feel a sense of loss over our dramatically changed landscapes. I feel like photography is a form of preservation. A documentation of a blip in time so that future generations can experience the beauty of the past.
With my food photography, I hope to connect people with the fresh ingredients used and inspire them to shop local and create an amazing dish in their own home.
My food photography is featured regularly in the LOCALadk magazine. My work has been in several juried shows and I've had the honor of being a part of a two artist show in 2014.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you've enjoyed everything as much as I did making it!
