Artist Statement

“I don’t shoot people. Instead, I use my camera to focus on the beauty I see around me. Through my art, I express my feelings for the locations I visit and the wonders of nature I encounter along the way. Rather than simply documenting a scene, my fine art works serve to communicate my memories and feelings about the subject or scene and to evoke an emotional response from the viewer.”
