Vision. Anticipation. Patience. My curiosity enables me to capture authentic moments in time, in which the pieces of the puzzle converge, fleeting elements coalesce and a photograph is made.
I find inspiration on the street, in a new city, in the water, in patterns in the sand. I celebrate wood, rust, texture and geometry. Depth and movement provide extra encouragement.
I am patient, yet persistent. I take the time to let a scene develop and evolve until it reveals itself to me. The result is a photograph with a sense of balance, sometimes clean, sometimes gritty. Always compelling. I love excluding the expected and including the unexpected, turning a seemingly mundane scene into a thought-provoking image.
My work has been exhibited and sold at multiple shows at the Evanston Art Center, 1100 Florence, My Secret Evanston, and Backlot Coffee. Notecards and prints available online.
