Artist Statement

Sometimes, just as I am falling asleep, images become jumbled and create strange visions. With many of these images, I have begun to create my own photographic landscapes from the places I visit. In the digital darkroom, I blend and fuse items of the natural world that I see in my travels to create the visions I see in my imagination.

Even in my landscape and nature work using straight, unmanipulated photography, the intent is not to document a place but a feeling - to allow the viewer to actively engage with the world I present.
