Artist Statement:

I am a photographer. I prepare my equipment, map out my route, study my destination, and finally, spend time taking photos. What I have learned along the way is – best laid plans can go awry. My best shots are those taken when spontaneity takes over and I am simply in the right spot, at the right moment, with my camera turned on.

I enjoy taking up the challenge to seek out the splendor, quiet, graceful beauty of the world around me while bringing my viewers along to provide them with an … “Ah ha moment!”
