Artist Statement

Photography is a natural extension of my passion for art and nature. Asian design is my greatest influence and I follow that aesthetic of 'less is more'. driven by my need to experiment and explore, I will sometimes manipulate an image to create what I already see in my mind's eye. I use whatever tools and techniques allow me to share with you, the viewer, an impression or point of view or just an appreciation of the beauty of the everyday.

<p>Compsosing the image is the most important and I may forget to eat, get totally soaked in the pouring rain, or get frozen fingers.&nbsp; That may make me stop because I can't press the shutter button.</p>
