Africa is where her heart belongs...
“I enjoy seeing and experiencing new places, but in spite of all the excitement and adventure it has to offer, there is never a sense of belonging. It is only here in the African landscape that I truly feel at home. This is why I love capturing the beauty and abundance of this rich land and all it has to offer.”
