About the Book
My great-grandparents married each other at the age of 18. They are both 99 years old now. When I asked great-grandpa, "What do you think made your marriage successful?", great-grandpa told me, "It is because of great-grandma and her consistent patience and kindness, because of her humble soul and because of her pure heart." -From the series 'Because of Her: Eight One Year', 2012
“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”— Ralph Hattersley “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt I received a BFA in Photography and K-12 art teaching certification from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia PA. I then moved to Rockland County NY from 2013-2016 to teach Photography, Mixed Media and Yearbook to students in 3rd-12th grade in. I'm currently in the final stretch of a graduate program for an MS in Art Therapy & Counseling at The College of New Rochelle, NY.
