I am inspired by nature and the emotions springing forth from ordinary scenes.
When you look at my work, I want to show you more than a still life, a moment, or a landscape. I wish for you to see beyond the images-an abandoned wooden boat becomes the memory of fishermen pulling their oars through the mist of morning, and a tree tells the tale of years standing strong in the face of storms.
I believe in learning as much as I can, and have taken photo workshops through Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. I am currently taking classes in the photography department at Santa Fe Community College.
