I feel great wonder and joy in the world around me. In awe of what I find in nature, I love the land, plants, patterns, and little corners of the world that I discover in my frequent wanderings there. Thus, my work ranges from sweeping landscapes to images of the often overlooked, but exquisitely beautiful, details of nature. Throughout, I attempt to incorporate a sense of design that is either inherent in the subject matter or effected by composition choice.
While my imagination is captivated by “found” artistry, I also believe a photographer may use the tools and techniques available to create expressive images. I am open to using the camera in non-traditional ways as well as to fully using the tools of the digital darkroom to develop my images to match my vision, both inner and outer.
I would like the viewing of my photographs to be a rich experience, evoking emotion and stimulating the imagination. Ultimately, I hope that my work allows viewers to be touched by the magic and beauty that is always around us.
