Artist StatementPhotography has always been a passion of mine from the time I first looked through a view finder when I was ten years old. Through my work I share my visual experiences with others as art captured as a photograph. I reproduce the image, providing the viewer with photographic art that conveys a message, a story, or just the sheer beauty of an object or scene. What I hope to share with those who view and purchase my work is the world as I see it, beauty, flaws and all. I love working with textures using them to enhance my images, offering an effect that transforms a picture into a unique work of art. Many of my images have been enhanced in Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. If the 'effect' doesn't work with your decor, please let me know what will and I will create an image just for you!
