Life is an adventure and I often choose to go left when most people turn right. As an artist my canvas is always full and I get to decide what to leave out.

I love people, and meeting new friends is a pleasure. We all have a story to tell some are at the beginning of the journey, while others are nearing the end.

I fell in love with photography as a teenage girl while studying visual arts; since then it’s been my passion and desire to capture true emotions, the raw essence and soul of those special moments that we treasure.

At age 18 I embarked on a mission to document Africa; a journey that took me almost 4 years. In this gallery of life I have seen light fade from every view, passionate lovers, lonely men, new mothers and senior citizens longing to be young again.

Through my lens I hope to reveal those true moments, passionately, and capture the moments as I see it. To preserve your memory is my honour so that you can relive them all over again.
