In my current exhibition "Sacred Ground", I am exploring sacred spaces in the form of my beliefs, spirituality, being grounded, motherhood, respecting sacred spaces, and having boundaries.
From our perspective to a very sacred one, be very respectable and do your research before you enter a sacred space to grant you a glimpse or even passage into the realm of the universe. Wander, explore, and discover but also reserve the right to be an advocate for yourself.

I was taught old-school photography in the darkroom. What I have learned is digital photography is one more tool for expressing oneself in the arts. Art can be very therapeutic and it enlightens that you are not alone and you can overcome anything in this human condition. We are navigating through this life and sometimes you don’t know where you are on your journey and where you want to go. Try to accept, invite and embrace change.

My photography work is held in private collections in Japan, France, Germany, Australia, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
