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. 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.
