Hi! My name is Viola
Yes, my name is pronounced like the instrument
While destiny seemed to have called me to more orchestral pursuits, my heart kept leading me back to photography. I love playing with color and light, the uniqueness in the art form, and the way every moment can be made special
I graduated from UW in 2022, with a degree in International Studies. Learning both German + Mandarin, I've always been keen to explore the world. Though global events have made that tricky the last few years, I still find adventures where I can in the wonderful mountains of the PNW.
I started riding when I was just 3 years old. From pony jumpers, to a brief junior hunter stint, to a very special OTTB, my junior career was varied and fun. As an ammy, I’ve been lucky to work with two very special jumpers. In 2021 I won gold individual in the high AA jumpers with Fib, and in 2022 I was the summer season champion at Tbird for the Low Jr/Am on Benny.
I was lucky to be able to purchase my very first personal horse just last year, a lovely young jumper from my good friends at BAIE Investments. Cheerio has been a joy to bring along, and I’m very excited about this new adventure. Massive thanks to Laina Summers, and the whole Bayview crew, for helping me make these dreams into a reality.
