Artist Statement

Photography is meditation, expression and revelation. It’s a way to express my feelings, a way to process what’s going on around me, and a way to be in the moment. I pause to observe details in the greater world and photograph them, and I work to create the same feeling of “pause” in my photography-based art. The type of “pause” can be meditative or surprised; curious or joyful. I seek anything that stops thought for a moment, allowing the world to be perceived in a different way.

I am greatly influenced by the places I live and explore every day. Over the last few years my photographic work has shifted from urban scenes to forest elements, reflecting a move from Milan, Italy to Corvallis, Oregon. I have also moved along the spectrum from literal and representational to abstract, taking photographic elements out of context and recombining them into something new and different. I am currently creating new work using an iPhone camera and apps, enjoying the experience of experimenting with a new process and seeing what possibilities may appear.
