ARTIST'S  STATEMENT


I see myself as a visual author whose aim is to create an ongoing journal of unexpected moments. My goal is to offer wonder or amusement to my viewer. 


I work in the field, wherever that may be, and in my studio. Shooting in the field tends to be opportunistic; I keep my senses open and stay aware of my surroundings. While shooting in the studio, I visualize the image with the accompanying emotions or ideas I hope to project and then aim my camera at that vision. I continue to experiment with multiple exposures, lighting and printing on different types of paper.


Flowers are my favorite subjects because of their color, diversity, and patience. (They never complain when I take hours to shoot!)


Each of my images is comprised of one or more of my digital photographs. Images are presented as prints on archival paper or canvas, and as note cards.
