Artist Statement

My passion for photography has rewarded me with the opportunity to examine the world carefully. Success is two-fold; first in making the discovery and capturing the moment that calls to me and second, in transferring that sense of discovery to the viewer. Drawn to images that offer a strong composition, pattern and rhythm I seek to create work with a unique perspective and pushing the limits of traditional composition ‘rules’ excites me. The landscape, nature subjects and things from the past are common themes in my work. My approach is intuitive and I choose to impose no constraints, leaving myself open only to possibilities.
