My eyes and my camera are the instruments that align with my heart and mind so I can produce art that is distinctively my own. Trends are not appealing to me; my creative preferences range from contemplative abstractions to honest renderings. Like other art, my photography is an ever-evolving journey where my desire to connect with, document and create from my surroundings is validated, yet constantly in flux.

Nature, movement, colors, divergent displays and life are my muses. My photographic process typically involves the assessment of light, examining interests of shape and movement, how composition will assist me in expressing my vision, or whether my creative use of depth of field will yield an intimate or expansive image. My decision making processes on aesthetics are meditative observations; all are made on an intuitive level felt between myself, the moment and the subjects that present themselves, using alternative techniques such as pinhole and slow shutter.

The busy-ness and repetition of day-to-day responsibilities oftentimes can distract us from our appreciation of the beautiful world around us. As is true (I believe) with most art, through my photography I seek to make connections and provide pleasure by illuminating and enhancing the viewer’s ability to witness our surroundings, offering almost a “permission” to stop and enjoy nature and an opportunity to present an understanding of our connection with it and responsibility to it. Through our connectivity and my art, I hope to bring the viewer a brief moment of peace, a healing of emotions or spirit, inspiration and enlightenment.
