“Her images of women - Goddesses - will literally leave you breathless, they will empower you, lift you. Inspire you. Encourage you.” —Amy Ferris, writer, author, playright, and yes, a Goddess.”
A tarot reading two decades ago literally changed my life. After years photographing glamorous weddings, I was ready for a new path. With prescient clarity, the reader interpreted the cards as the message to photograph women as Goddesses. “I don’t know what a Goddess is!” I replied. “Don’t worry, the women will know.” And so it began.
I have traveled near and far from my Hudson Valley home to create iconic portraits that uncovers the spirit of independent girls, ferocious women, powerful warrior activists and epic elders, and weaves together the personal and collective journeys of women’s lives.
My interest lays at the intersection between fine arts and social engagement. My work blends several mediums, including collage, film, multi-media and photography.
Women are my subjects and how our stories connect us to one another. The portraits are culturally diverse and grounded in a sense of place—the land. I am inspired by the collaborative process, making space for personal agency, and the radical act of declaring, “I am here. See me."
