Artist Statement


I make photographic art to express a connection with the world environment. I am drawn to experience and express the unique moment where the subject takes over -- where the photographer becomes merely a vehicle for communication with the essence of the subject.  Art and life are intertwined -- our art reflects who we are and how we experience our world.  I am a firm believer in the presence of the Muse -- a spirit guide that is present when taking the time to be calmly present to a subject -- thus letting the image unfold in a magical way. 

The pursuit of fine art photography offers continuous challenges to probe more deeply and carefully into common everyday experiences. I work to create photographic images that may fill a need for visual contemplation and reflection. My work is offered to simply share a personal viewpoint. When a work speaks to you, then I feel I have been successful.
