As a child spending countless hours in her Italian grandparent’s garden she learned to observe and appreciate the smallest changes in nature and the world around her. This quality has always been present in her art and nowadays she looks to capture those finite moments with her camera. Their garden was her Eden, and with this exhibit she wants everyone to have the opportunity to appreciate the peacefulness and wonder that nature brings into life and that is still within us.
Her love of life shows with the range of subjects that she chooses to capture. Currently she is a member of PWP, the Professional Women Photographers group and her latest assignment took her to the Formula Drift Pro Championship in Englishtown, NJ. to photograph Samuel Hubinette for Mopar.
