“Neither subject matter nor genre solely defines my images; they are defined by my artistic esthetic.”An early interest in art led to theater and then to stage make-up. Through her work as a make-up artist for Ralph Lauren and Warner Communications she got exposed to photography. She quickly claimed top honors in many of the world’s major photography competitions. Perhaps more impressive than the large number of awards she has earned, is the fact that she has won these awards across virtually all categories: portraiture, nature, sports, abstract, photojournalism, advertising, fashion, architecture… Her handling of images ranges from the raw-out-of-the-camera look of her urban street photography, such as The Morning After, to highly manipulated homages to classical painting, such as Girl with Tiger. “I embrace the challenge of exploring varied subjects and forms of artistic expression.”
