Artist's Statement

An artist statement allows me to express to you what I do and how I see art in the work I do. I am a fine art landscape photographer. The result of my work is a fine art print.

I share an intimacy with the world in which we live. I participate in life from the “bottom up”. That means that I share and show my primary experience in nature. I do not go into nature with a preconceived idea of what I want to capture and show. Instead each photo session is unique and spontaneous. I share that raw and uncensored experience of one person living on this planet and returning with a unique experience. Nothing in my work is rehearsed.

My art is also an exploration of my own creative life. It shows the natural world outside the confines of documentary or travel photography. It shows the world as my soul sees it.

My art is deliberately manipulated to express what I see. There is no other way. What I see through the camera meets what my soul sees. In the midst of this process emerges my style of photographic art.

I transform the world through an entirely digital process, and I share it in print.

I roam the world, inspired by a silent love of life, to see what is most meaningful and compelling to me as an artist and an individual. The experience of our world’s beauty is without and beyond words. But it can be seen without having to name it. That is what I express it in my work…the wordless.

I do not know what more one can say about this love of life, except that there is a desire to share it as a tangible fine art print. In that sharing comes the fulfillment of my love of this world and our life within it.

What I bring back to share from this complex adventure is a simple, fine art photographic print.
