Art is communication, and through my images, I seek to communicate the grandeur and power of the world we live in, which sometimes goes unnoticed in our hurried lives.

Artist Statement

Due to many years as a dance director, I am attracted to color, form, and movement in the world around me. As a photographer, I seek to capture the artistry inherent in nature, as well as the created artistry of man. Art is communication, and through my images, I seek to communicate the grandeur and power of the world we live in, which sometimes goes unnoticed in our hurried lives.
