PHOTOGRAPHY: I have been taking and printing photographs since grade school when I was first amazed by the magic of capturing a moment in time as a visual image. I would often look for elements in a photo which I had not seen when the picture was snapped but which the camera’s eye had seen and recorded. In this way, the camera and its images have continued to intrigue and teach me that there is always more than meets the eye. The camera has expanded my appreciation and experience of the world around me with moments of enhanced immersion in Nature and Her wonderful nuances. The lingering printed images bring me back to the uplifting moments of instant connection with the miracles all around. In recent years, the subject has often been light itself as it fills a space with its celestial energy and brings life and energy to a moment in time and space
For me, these images share the magic of sunlight entering, filling and painting an illuminated natural landscape and common objects in a new “light”, which otherwise might go unnoticed and may never occur again!
WOODTURNING: The inspiration for these pieces is the trees themselves, rescued from the wood pile and fallen limbs. To honor their majesty, I decided to learn how to use a lathe to make woodturning & transform these gifts from Nature into beautiful objects. Each log dictates the piece’s overall shape. My mission is to allow each unique grain pattern a voice. I often incorporate curves to showcase these patterns in the reflected light. Each piece asks to be touched & held.
