“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way-“ Georgia O’Keeffe Every time I pick up a camera, my goal is to create a photograph that uplifts, enlightens, and inspires action. In order to tell a story that resonates with my soul, my images are often full of loud colors, loud people, and a lot of light. As artists, we can only offer a perspective that is uniquely our own. My hope is that my perspective helps inspire you to find a new side of yourself as other artists have so brilliantly done for me.
Where is your absolute favorite place on this planet? I usually say my bed, but Portugal is right up there with it.
Red. Like a Red Personality. I remember taking the Hartman Personality Test in 8th grade to find out whether I was a Red, Blue, White, or Yellow. I knew right off the bat that I was going to be a Red. I so desperately wanted to be one of the fun-loving Yellows, knowing full well I never had been and never would be. I could definitely try, and believe me I have, but as I have gotten older I have learned to love the good, the bad, and the ugly about myself. It’s the strong and passionate aspects of my personality that get me into trouble, but that also allow me to create loud, colorful, bold images that hopefully inspires others to be unabashedly themselves. I know that coding personalities by color has become obsolete, but this test I took all the way back in 8th grade has taught me to love myself despite the flaws I am so painfully aware of. It’s something that takes practice and daily effort, but I have seen myself make progress since that 14 year-old me feeling sorry for myself, and that feels pretty darn good. Here’s just a little reminder to all my fellow Reds out there that you are just as loveable as all those Yellows. Keep doing you. We need every color in the rainbow. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
