The first time I picked up a camera, I immediately knew how powerful it was. That purple LeClic I got for my 9th birthday revealed a world where light and shadow intermingled to transform a hundredth of a second into an indelible story rich with meaning. 

Storytelling has been at the heart of everything I’ve done for as long as I can remember. The story of this moment right now is more than two years in the making and emerged as a bright spot from our pandemic life.

When the walls felt like they were closing in, the photographs hanging on them transported us all over the world. They reminded us of the myriad places and cultures that enriched our lives, the vastness of our planet, and the beauty of our diverse landscapes and human experiences. They gave us perspective. 

That time also helped us focus on what we love and care about most. And that’s making art, sharing it with you, and empowering our wildly talented community of artists to do that, too.

Now, I'm excited to share with you my labor of love and the launch of my next chapter — Stolen Butter, a gallery founded by artists to connect you to our work and the stories we tell, while building a community of art lovers and makers around the world.

Our 30 debut collections feature 240 exclusive works of photography and manual art by six artists, myself included. And that's just the beginning — we’ll be adding new work and new artists throughout the coming months.

Please take a look around and let us know what connects with you. If you like what you see, subscribe to our newsletter and follow @stolenbutter on Instagram and @stolenbuttergallery on Facebook for the latest updates and promos.

There’s so much more to come, and I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
