Richmond Arts Coalition


Like many photographers, Sabrina began armed with nothing more substantial than a point-and- shoot compact camera. Encouraged by her father’s desire for her to pursue photography, she has worked to hone her photographic skills and develop her visual voice. She studied under Canadian photographer/writer Freeman Patterson, Magnum’s Larry Towell, and National Geographic’s William Albert Allard and she has had a long apprenticeship with Pacific Northwest photographer Raymond L. Ketcham. As part of the editorial team at Rear Curtain magazine, she provides a venue for emerging visual storytellers to share their work online and in print. As co-founder of ART (the Artist Round Table) and IDEA (Image Discussions for Emerging Artists), Sabrina has created a community to support the development and mentoring of photographic artists in Canada, the US and as far away as Australia. These artists have gone on to exhibit and publish their work to a growing audience. Rarely seen in front of the camera, Sabrina also leads a secret life as a Human Resources Professional and is currently working on a long-term project documenting changing life in the Village of Steveston, Richmond.
