My obsession with photography started with my love of black and white film. Since I was very little I used to imagine scenes in shades of gray and when I started painting I would often sketch my paper or my canvas using charcoal and then feel reluctant to paint them with my colors. I pretty much live for color nowadays and I love to bring my images to life in that way, but it's true what they say about never forgetting your first love. I've been exploring and studying tones and contrasts for years but lately I'm feeling so energized and inspired by the patterns and textures that I'm finding in nature.
The question I get asked more than any other is what inspires me. Every month as part of my personal and creative process I make a mood board where I book mark all of my current favorite things and I'm really excited to start sharing these with you here on the blog so you can see a little bit of what I'm coveting and what is inspiring me inside and outside my studio.
