My work is the fusion of design and nature. I alter a single photograph to infuse natural compositions with depth, creating a scene that transcends time and space. The altered perspective bridges the gap between the landscape and the viewer's imagination. It transports them to an experiential universe that emerges from stillness of the photograph. These visions inspire a meditative mental state and a positive atmosphere for self reflection.
Being a multi-faceted visual designer for many years, I’ve been able to turn my trajectory to photographic art prints. After refining my craft earning a BFA from Pratt Institute I pursued a career in advertising and later earned an MA from NYU. My photojournalistic style of shooting, design sense, use of color and love of perspective comes through in my compositions. As an outdoor enthusiast, I've traveled to some mountainous regions around the world: from my family’s origin in Haiti, to Maui, to where I live in Southern California (Los Angeles) and Argentina.
