Artist Statement

Originally from Quebec City, I moved to Twillingate 16 years ago. I absolutely fell in love with the place, I mean, what’s not to like? The scenery, the natural beauty and the historic quality of Twillingate makes it a photographer’s paradise.

When I purchased my first DSLR camera, it opened up a whole new world of creativity for me. When I learned about the different settings and what I could do with them, I knew this medium was for me. I entered several photo contests that helped me get better and push myself more.

I always loved photography, but when I moved here, the passion really developed and I continually work to improve my skills.

I also developed a love of “portraits that tell a story,” by using props and my imagination.
