I graduated college with a BS degree in Cytotechnology and worked in a laboratory for many years. With the use of a microscope, I analyzed and diagnosed specimens for cancer and infections. I left the cytology field in 2013 and focused on my passion for art. Since then, my art has been collected and shown in multiple art galleries.
I was a Cytotechnologist by education, but an artist at heart. Taking that leap from comfort and stability to a life of uncertainty was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but I'm glad I did it. I didn't realize how much science molded me until four years ago - I analyze details and connections in my photography. My photography styles are primarily - minimal, abstract, and photorealism. I'm influenced by photographers Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, Vivian Maier, and Robert Adams because of their composition and documentary emotion. My abstract acrylic paintings are created from select photographs or expressed with a narrative element. Many paintings contain cellular elements which relate to histology and cytology sciences.
