Artist Statement

Black and white photography was my first real plunge into self-expression and my subject matter was, and still is, the candid, portrait shot.

Although I prefer photographing women, I have found humanity in general to be a rich source of wonderful images.

Several years ago I discovered Photoshop, initially as a means of retouching my existing prints, but I have now gone to almost entirely digital. I find the ability to manipulate the image, to create other moods, other moments from that one particular instance of human history, truly revolutionary for our time, an amalgamation of the real and surreal to create yet another reality.
