Art has always been part of my life in one form or another, but photography has truly stayed with me. My camera proves to be, time and time again, the ultimate outdoor companion; I take my camera on many adventures: biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking...together, we record, celebrate, and share the intricate puzzle that is the outdoors. Many of my photographs are really about light: the way it plays on mountainsides; the way it illuminates a leaf; the way it plays in and through water; and the way it can transform the same-old-place-you-pass-every-day into an entirely new world.
Photography, for me, is a way of stretching the mind, of seeing the world in a new way. M.C. Escher sums it up well when he asks, “Are you really sure that a floor can’t also be a ceiling?” I ask that question—or a version thereof—each time I point a lens toward the world out there. I enjoy transforming the statement of “This is what I see” into a question: “Is this what I see?” In this way, a stream can become a cloud, and a tiny flower can become a giant. Some say there’s an entire world out there, waiting to be discovered; I strive to connect the world “out there” with the world within our hearts and minds.
All of my images are printed using archival processes and matted with acid-free mats. Photos are available either framed or unframed; please contact me to find out more about sizes and creative custom frames.
Enjoy my world! I look forward to hearing from you sometime soon!
