Photographer's Statement:

I often take day trips with my sister to the woods. We love going into the woods and exploring. I like to experiment with new techniques with my photos to see what I can create. Spending time in the woods and in the outdoors allows me to take a break from the struggles I have and get away for a few hours. The woods make me really happy and exploring them is always an adventure.
