Artist's Statement

As a novelist, I am driven by a need to both capture and preserve the small moments of life with language. And even when my medium shifts from writing to photography, my artistic goals remain the same. I am fascinated by the fleeting moment, by the ability a camera gives me to seize (and preserve) the ephemeral. As a mother of two young daughters, I am particularly enthralled by the transitory nature of childhood. And while fiction necessitates a certain artifice, I strive for truth in my images. None of my photos are staged. They are all candid shots taken during typical days in our typical lives, and my hope is that they reflect not only my reverence for the transience of childhood but also the extraordinary beauty of the ordinary moment. This is a peek inside my ephemera files.
