The Journey
My journey as an artist is quite personal. I started exploring photography as an abstract painter during a challenging period in my life. At that time, I found comfort in nature, especially in places like the gorges, lakes, and streams near where I live in the Finger Lakes region.

I see my abstract photographs as poems. Akin to the process of writing poetry, when I take a picture I focus on rhythm, movement, sensuality, and layers of meaning. Through the camera lens, a decomposing leaf in a small puddle of water or a beam of light refracted in a stream transforms into a whole universe of new perspectives.

Nature is always teaching me. Some days I breathe easier when I photograph water reflections. Other days, my shoulders soften as I photograph moss, rocks, or ice. Nature grounds me.

When I take a picture, I experience a moment of communion with the elements. In every possibility of its form, I want my art to inspire healing by stimulating a curiosity to explore the inner world by seeing and experiencing the outer one anew.
