Owner & Artist
I love to dance. I studied ballet behind the Iron Curtain in Bulgaria, and arrived in the States a few months after the Berlin Wall came down.
I performed on stage as a dancer for many years before photography and the visual arts captured my interest.
Ballet remains my first love, but now I try to dance with my pictures. Dance is so ethereal, a moment in time. Exactly what a photograph can be...
I love collaborations. My life has become a string of new and exciting projects incorporating video, sound, choreography, painting with dancer's bodies and experimenting in different mediums.... Did i mention performing? Yes, that too :)

I am a prismatic raconteur. I am a teller of tales which are filled with vivid imagery. My work has been called dangerous, cautionary, provoking and deliciously funny. The Theatre. My one true love.
I love to mix words with movement, shape the body for alternate expression and stir emotions that stem purely from the human skeleton.
I am a constant student. I have stood on the shoulders of giants and saturated myself with a style that is solely unique to my own work. I am an Artist.
“The human spirit is strong, sometimes broken, often in despair, and always spiritually rich. Art must follow the path of unbridled revelation to reflect such spirit and force.”
