about Inner Essence


I have always appreciated the health & strength of my body yet struggled to be comfortable with the shape of its form. Through the kindness of the photography lens and talented photographers, I have accepted that my essence has scars, wrinkles, and curves. I honestly believe that exposing the rawness of who I am - flaws & all, will open the door of less critical self-thoughts for those of us grappling with mid-life & self acceptance. We should see beauty in every form. So I am unapologetically embracing that I am imperfectly perfect. My wish for others is to do the same.

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”
― Steve Maraboli

    • Thank you. I believe being in front of the lens reflects emotions which we keep to ourselves ... such a sense of freedom.

  • I was struck by your portfolio, great posing and you worked with some great photographers too.. Your bio and photo's remind me of Keith Richards or Johnny Cash: men that grew more beautiful the older they got. It may not be fair to compare you with men, you express more than that: I also see plenty of female strength.....

    • Thank you! I believe that resiliency does not have a gender, and yes, it makes us richer both inside and out. Richards & Cash are great company to be in :-)

  • You project a rare confidence and wisdom that is a pleasure to behold. Thank you for making this world a more beautiful place with your art!
