I inherited the need for freezing moments and creating poetry through photography. In addition to the artistic creativity expressed by my mother, father and so many others in my family, I credit my grandfather for passing down the passion of freezing time through visual moments.

My appreciation for all things diverse and interesting can be attributed to my parents’ military career which was the source of long road trips and exposure to many different parts of the country. Philadelphia, San Diego, New Jersey and Oklahoma all became classrooms of life and with each move; I took with me pieces of each city.

The loss of my mother in 2006 created a sadness and despair in my growth and ability to connect. During a five year sabbatical as a Sous Chef at Elena's Soul Lounge in West Philadelphia, I was able to mourn the loss of a loving life and persevere at maintaining one, as I awaited the beckoning of a camera to resuscitate me.  I was allowed to capture moments as I saw or felt them happening.  Elena’s Soul helped to restore me. Once again, Photography became my greater purpose.  By capturing life, I saved my own.

 

In 2009, I established “Art Thru The Eye Ov Ra Photography” located in Philadelphia. I am  constantly looking to break barriers and expand creative connection on a global scale.  I am an active member of the association for National Black Female Photographers and currently teach photography workshops in the Philadelphia area. My students range from beginners & enthusiasts to seasoned experts. My goal is to share my skills and knowledge with others while continuing to sharpen my skill set as a PORTRAIT, WEDDING, FASHION AND FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHER.
