ARTIST STATEMENT

Out of the ground and into the light, I sculpt each element: stem, petal, and leaf. 

 

Endlessly working, quietly harmonizing until a glorious union is bathed in light.  The final compositions are thrilling landscapes. 

Between an intimate relationship with varied species and the vast reaching vista of my imagination, a balance is struck.  Throughout each photograph the poetry of pastoral beauty emanates and the character of each flower is accentuated. Oscillating between simplicity and light, a lyrical new terrain emerges.

 

At their center my photographs are modern, meaning simply the materials harvested from the garden are used honestly, each for their own qualities and that the resulting photographs adapt nature’s design.  Serving life in a variety of forms, colors, and textures, they are organic and complex. Like the garden, they are most useful to the human spirit.
