Artist's Statement

 

I have been fascinated with photography my entire life.  I have passionately lived with, explored and created with the medium since the 1980s and have had the great fortune to experience photography through light and film and the magic of the darkroom prior to this digital age.   The spontaneous and intuitive approach to photography I discovered in my darkroom-days combined with the endless and exciting options I am now finding in the world of digital photography allow me to create unique images and portraits. 
                   
I am charmed by photography’s ability to arrest time, to save the moment, to take what is fleeting and make it permanent and lasting.
