Art is present in everything I do. Whether the medium be photography, hair, makeup, drawing, painting, pottery, jewelry, tie dye, or even gardening, I love to create and make people happy through my art. Photography is my passion. It speaks from my soul.
My love of beauty, art and transformation began at an early age. I was always creating: styling hair, doing makeup and taking pictures. This ongoing passion led me to UB where I received my BFA in photography, and Toronto where I studied Cosmetology. For the past 25 years, I have been blessed to have the opportunity to travel the globe honing my skills, and finally opening Dragonfly Studio & Salon; a full service holistic spa /photo studio/ artisan boutique. Dragonfly is a magical place. It is devoted to nurturing the soul, while transforming mind, body, and spirit.
Why Dragonfly? It is symbolic of renewal, positive force and the power of life in general; a sense of self that comes with maturity, new light and joy, good luck, swiftness, purity, harmony, strength, happiness, courage, subconscious thoughts, new beginnings, hope, love and abundance.
Motherhood has also played an important role in my work. Children are so innocent, fearless and divine. They open your eyes to world that is still pure and filled with peace and love. My daughters Sarina and Darya constantly inspire me to see through fresh eyes.
Whenever I peer through the lens of a camera, magic occurs. I am transformed through time and space, a glimpse of the Divine appears. I see beauty and potential in everything. I capture beauty unfolding.
I love to inspire and teach people through my art.
