Photographing the natural world, for me, is a contemplative process. I am drawn into patterns. reflections, form and light and while I'm photographing time disappears.
Through my fine art photography I want to capture a sense of place that may not be literal but holds the feeling or essence of what I'm seeing or experiencing. I'm drawn to a sense of movement and fluidity in images and work with montages, movement, multiple exposures and infrared as tools to capture a moment in time.
In 2003, following a life long interest in photography I attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana for a 3 month intensive program. I have studied with and been inspired by many fine art photographers including Eddie Soloway, Elizabeth Opalenik and Freeman Patterson.
