We are the weirdos. Creatives and artists have for a long-time been associated with the strange, the weird, and the uniquely different. When I was younger, weird was used as a slur, something to make you feel badly about not being like the rest of them. I always found being weird as a badge of […]
Your tribe is out there.
As a photographer, for the longest time I thought I had to fit into a certain box in order to “make it.” There was a prescribed recipe for “success” as a photographer, and I felt frustrated by the limitations. I even took a year break from photography, and at the end I looked back on […]
Beyond the Bedroom: Create a boudoir set in your own home.

How to create performance art?
Performance art is one of my favorite genres of art. There is something so amazing about being able to not only express your idea in physical form, but to become the art piece. Performance art, not to be confused with the performing arts, such as theater, is the use of one’s body to create art within […]
Everything Glitters: A Retrospective.
You might know by now that I was playing with glitter and confetti these last two months. I can tell you, my apartment will never be the same…and I am glad. Shooting the Glitter Me set was a blast. I love working with materials, and when I explore something, I go full out. I started […]
Winter Themed Set: Glitter Me.
What I love about these themed photo sets is that it makes me create something new every few months and that I get to work on what is inspiring me at the moment. The last theme was witchy and came from my renewed interest in learning more about more witch things, intention, and my obsession […]
