Our loud world moves faster and faster, making more and more simultaneous demands on our attention. I create quiet images that demonstrate the availability and accessibility of beauty and calm in nature. My images are invitations for viewers to experience the renewal and nourishment of slowing down, being still and focusing attention.

I studied photography at Emerson College, but it is has been the daily practice of being present to the process without demand or expectation of a specific outcome that has opened the doors of inspiration. I take multiple images of a particular subject/setting and depending on my abilities that day I either chase or dance with the light. If I am in step I do not need to even see the image in my viewfinder. I will feel it when I have captured it.

I never stage my photographs. Their special magic is that they are found. This discovery and abundance is part of the experience I want to share with the viewer. Spirit, rather than people, inhabit my work. I seek that golden proportion of space and light that provides room for spirit and breath. I strive to balance images and expand their possibilities by encouraging multiple entry points and perspectives.

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay and death. It is simple, slow and uncluttered and it reveres authenticity above all. It is my guiding principal for creating images.

Welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit.
