Artist Statement

My interest is in nature photography. While I don’t believe one can improve on the beauty of nature, one can interpret it in a unique way.

With a focus on flowers, I capture the detail, textures and beauty, at various angles and perspectives to create my minds vision in print.
I generally draw focus to the singular subject, an individual flower, bud or leaf, rather than the larger view. My hope is to create a photograph that is a work of art, through which the viewer can admire the beauty of nature and witness the striking details that would otherwise be overlooked.
