Sanctuary as art

While my photography subject may appear clear to you at first: animals, cows, chickens, sheep, cats... I ask you to look deeper to see my true purpose: to showcase Love.

The animals photographed at Lasa Sanctuary exist and thrive far beyond mere labels of species. They are ambassadors of good will, advocates for all life, treasured family members, and unique, beautiful individuals.

Through my camera lens, my wish is that you'll see them (really SEE them) and feel the love and connection as I do.

Through the lens of my camera, I aim to share my experiences of love and unity with the rescued animals of Lasa Sanctuary with an endless audience. Animals so often go unseen, yet we have much to learn from their genuineness, resilience, and love. I invite you to look around and be in awe of the faces you see, each has his/her own tale of hardship, rescue, healing, and sanctuary.
