Artist's Statement

Enthusiasm with art and photography led me to take many photography classes through school and college. After college I pursued a career in Biology and my extensive use of photo-microscopy required that I continue to develop photography skills, including digital and three-dimensional imaging.

Although my early photographic training was in the tradition of the f64 club, I am an experimentalist by nature and incorporate the use of shallow depth-of-field and slow shutter speeds at times to convey my impression of the moment. In terms of artistic inspiration and expression I am most influenced by late 18th and early 19th Century Luminist painters.

I particularly enjoy making panoramic images because of the way they draw the viewer into the scene and convey a sense of space. I also like to explore relationships of subjects and their shadows as well as other optical phenomena.

My purpose is to share the joy I find in the beauty that surrounds us all. I sincerely hope you enjoy my photographs.
