ARTIST STATEMENT

Whether it is near my home in Georgia or during my travels throughout the world,  I find it inspiring to spontaneously capture what is personally meaningful to me…the diversity of cultures, engaging street scenes, solitary faces, unique architecture. the essence of nature, and the spiritual beauty of life.

For thirty years I have been drawing and photographing intuitively, working to create images of engaging situations and captivating forms which communicate a story, a mood, a spirit, a philosophy, a memory, or a emotion.  I believe that an exceptional image speaks its own personal language to each viewer.
