Artists Statement

Nothing is real, except this moment.

I use the camera as a way of forcing myself into a moment, to become hypersensitive…to see and feel the beauty around me, the infinitesimal details and and infinite complexity of the place and time. A moment of Zen. Time slows and my awareness grows, with this so does my emotional self.

I’m fascinated and in awe of the rhythms, patterns and details in nature, but I’m beginning to play with the concepts of the human experience and our malleable existence and experience. My art reflects, not only what a saw, but how I felt. I use a mixture of literal, abstract, and illustrative photography techniques, including alternative capture techniques to accomplish this.
