“Creating images is my passion. I so enjoy using Mother Nature as my model; I never have to go far to find an encouraging subject, whether recording tiny rain drops on a fallen leaf or an abstract late afternoon shadow lingering from an old fire escape. Taking commonplace subjects and finding beauty within brings me great inspiration. Being aware of the texture, color, contrast, shape and lighting allows me to go beyond the obvious and discover what is often invisible to the casual observer. I seek images that portray the not so obvious, of the obvious; images of what we are exposed to every day of our lives, but often do not see. Having to answer to no one, my creative efforts are mine alone; I can explore as I wish, go where I please and create as I desire. It is this freedom that allows me to produce the images I see, and art that I am proud of.”
