I find it difficult to encapsulate my work in a brief artist statement. As I am not a poet I will simply say I have found my home on the opposite side of the lens. Ive spent most of my adult life in the corporate world never finding the sense of satisfaction and happiness that I do when I take a photograph of a simple leaf and it turns out to be something extraordinary. Where Alice had the Looking Glass I have my camera lens. I often feel as if I see life through a lens as no matter where I find myself Im always framing the perfect shot in my mind. . In the end I could use all sorts of dramatic and artistic words to describe my work hoping to evoke an emotion in the reader. The simple fact is I photograph things that are pleasing to or intrigue me and hope that they are pleasing to those who view my work.
