I’m originally from Southern California but have lived and worked throughout the U.S. I love the natural world and landscape photography is one of my favorite genres. I’m also drawn to abstract and conceptual images, because of the singular freedom they can provide. I gravitate toward expressionism in photography, striving to capture the subjective aspects of a scene. I feel most successful when those viewing my images wwwelop their own, personal understanding of what the image encapsulates. I love discovering and photographing the simple, unadorned segments of everyday life. Photographing people also has its own rewards. Having been a Clinical Social Worker, I appreciate the value of discovering and bringing out that often hidden, a little extra piece that establishes a person’s unique character.
