Artist Statement

When I approach an image, I try to see an emotional or spiritual facit hidden within the subject, and bring this out with color, light, or motion, either by adding or enhancing what is there.

I try not to complicate the subject beyond the simple vision of what I first saw, although the temptation is always there to say much more (and a few of my images here have taken steps into that arena).

I am a relative newcomer to this form of art.

I work from digital photographs taken with a Nikon Coolpix 950 and manipulate them using Adobe Photoshop 5.5.

I am fascinated by the amount of control I have within this "digital darkroom", I believe it has redefined artistic photography.

Being able to work in a filmless enviroment allows me enormous opportunity to experiment.

In seeing other artists' work, I can only hope to keep up the pace!
