“I’m inspired by life, people, stories, photography and beauty I see in everything and everyone around me. I like viewing life like one would through a camera lens slowing it down frame by frame and appreciating the beauty in the contents of the stills that are created. Animals have had a major influence in my life. Working with horses has granted me the ability to communicate in a language that is not dependent on words. It’s allowed me to develop a watchfulness, understanding and appreciation for things in this world, in a way I otherwise might not have been able to. The subjects in my art, mostly animals, represent power, independence, purity and freedom. Furthermore, however, the strengths resonated by these images also represent something even more significant than the images themselves.”
