Artist Statement

My interests are in textures, shapes, sizes, and reflections. The images I present include florals, traditional street photography, and a few landscapes.

Artist Bio

For nearly twenty years my photographs and digital images have been inspired by the beauty I encounter on a daily basis. Recently, many of the images have been of flowers and leaves. One moment I might be struck by the angle of light on the azalea in my front yard and race to capture it before a cloud covers the sun. On another day, a neighborhood garden looks to me like the essence of summer, or the red leaf of a maple tree brings on the chill air of fall in Maryland. Sometimes, different angles in a store window display make me think of the past, or the future. It’s all in your point of view.
