Artist Statement

I envision my efforts to capture the beautiful visual impact of the world around us. If the viewer achieves a feeling of quiet serenity and a sense of beauty in this challenging world, I have achieved my goal as an artist. I strive to bring beauty with the interplay of color, light, composition, and presentation.
I am truly inspired by nature and its beauty and majesty as well as the natural manmade forms of bridges, arches, gardens, sculptures, and walkways. I believe that photography is an art form like painting that if successful evokes a positive emotional response in the viewer.
