The world that manifests its presence through our senses is a strange and beautiful place.

My artwork is essentially an attempt to come to terms with beauty and truth. Photography enables me to give form to my perspective. Each picture that captures some degree of meaning provides me with an opportunity for insight into how I am part of creation and creation is part of me. Occasionally the insight is profound, more often it alludes to something hidden, as yet unknown, still to be examined. My camera gives me a tool that sharpens my awareness of the now.
