Coffee to a Tea with Sugar May Artist Machel Spence


“I have lived in West Seattle for 11 years and love everything about this area...especially the parks! I started photographing people and places before I realized I was interested in a career in photography. In college, I majored in Zoology and was constantly amazed at how symmetrical and unique everything relating to the biological world was. I hope that my photography ignites a passion in anyone who views it to take the time to look more closely at the beauty that surrounds us. We are all very lucky to be a part of it.”
