ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is a result of my experience, trial and error, creativity, personalities, desire, weather, light, all manipulated until the energy evolves into a moment that a second before seemed unattainable but somehow happened. 

Capturing that moment is addictive. I anxiously anticipate, almost crave the success of the perfect image. This process is rewarding, frustrating, and all-consuming, and I cannot imagine my life without it.

I strive for my photographs to convey the emotion they depict. Each image is
memorable because of the emotions they evoke, in the photographer, the subject, and the viewer.

I learned to print in the traditional darkroom and was an early adopter of archival inkjet printing. I printed these images utilizing the finest archival inks and papers.  This final step ensures the original intent of the photograph is realized.
