Nature and the landscape are central to my work.  I am interested in the mystery, magic and history of the landscape and in what may be felt as well as seen. Beauty is an issue I often deal with and humor is sometimes present.  Influenced by Buddhist philosophy, I often juxtapose elements that suggest the symbiotic coexistence of the conscious and the unconscious, permanence and transience. 
My photographic practice has evolved into two distinct strands: manipulated, photo collaged imagery and more documentary photography. My work crosses boundaries and explores the intersections between traditional and digital photography. I use contemporary tools, but my photography is grounded in and refers to traditional ways of making and interpreting images.
