Photography

I take photographs to evoke a sense of place. Images that tell their own stories and stir emotions. Images with roots. For me, food is one of the greatest storytellers, whether in the form of a recipe, a freshly picked piece of fruit or a wild edible foraged in a forest. The harbinger of the seasons, captured in a moment. I am happiest in wild, open spaces and I spend a lot of time chasing the light. Fortunately, where I live in Nova Scotia, there is no shortage of wild coastline and magical light.
