Through my photography, my desire is to bring imagination and fantasy to others while carrying my own Dreamworld into real life. Using a combination of conceptual fairytales and fashion, I create an refuge from the monotony and mundane within a series of images. Offering glimpses into a safe place, one free from reality, I tell my stories using color film, Polaroids, and other experimental processes.
