Photography is an artistic tool for visual communication for me.  I enjoy searching for unique and creative ways to connect to my subject, and to convey a story and/or an emotion to my audience.  I’ve come to appreciate that it’s what’s in my head that matters, and not so much the apparatus that separates me from the subject.

Color has always been a catalyst for me.  Whether I’m reveling in a joyous celebration or stressing over an issue that I’m trying to wrap my arms around, color helps me to define the situation and provides an anchor upon which to rest my thoughts and to devise a path that moves me forward.  Color can be uplifting for my spirit, but it can also facilitate a hiding place for me, where I can step back, ruminate, and be alone with my thoughts, creating a context within which my goals are set and activities are executed. Even though color remains a constant, my art as a photographer has evolved from images that capture a moment in time (or a preservation of a memory) to an art form that has a story component, and maybe sometimes a sense of feeling or emotion.  When I take a photograph, my intent is to invite the viewer into a world that I see through the lens.  That world represents an escape for me, and a leeway for new adventures – adventures that I wish to share with others.  And I need not travel far for that escape.   I sometimes get giddy when I create art out of the ordinary.

What They're Saying...

CAFA + Photo 2022 Virtual Exhibition:  "Steppers"  This setting evokes a de Chirico urban landscape with the massive columnar forms on the right and the strong horizontal lines of the steps jutting into infinity, all of which is offset by the azure blue sky and figures moving through space. The two figures in the distant center create a small vertical offset while the runner bounding up the steps in the right foreground makes for a dynamic counterpoint with implied motion and energy that balances, enlivens and humanizes the scene.  George Schaub, Juror
