ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I developed an interest in photography 10 years ago during the Digital Revolution. My path has been unlike many other long time photographers of my generation. My studies and development techniques have been concentrated on the digital SLR combined with computer software and hardware. My technical training has been mostly learned using online computer and photography courses, combined with classes at the South Bend campus of Ivy Tech.

Photography for me is more than a pastime, it is an artist's passion. I possess an intense need and desire to produce art. I have always been drawn to landscape and nature photography, not only because it is challenging, but also I never cease to be amazed by the beauty that surrounds us. My photography body of work has reconnected me to a more simple, quiet essence of purpose and place, appreciating what is beautiful and good around us.
