A small word about me:
I am quiet. I spend days without talking. But give me movement. Movement with my feet; shotgun in a car, camera ready.
I travel to exist. I have no home. I have an illness. I would be housebound if I had a home, due to this illness. So I gave up home.
I want to be everywhere. My heart flutters to be multiplied across the world. This is Vata energy, one of the three doshas of Indian philosophy, a country where I've lived and worked. I am wind, dry, seeking grounding always, which is the source of my compulsion to track down roots. I have post-graduate degrees in art history, have traveled the world in search of ruins and art, and train my camera on the quiet quotidian evidence of cultural belonging.
My photographs are exhibited in solo and collected shows nationally and internationally.
My current multi-year project loosely takes shelter under the umbrella of "Past Ruins, To Modernity," wherein I travel and live in countries from the Mediterranean and the Levant to Central Asia and Japan. I seek spaces of wonder, from experiencing torrential winds on a ruined mountaintop to standing with other pilgrims to carve my wishes to the saints.
