The major focus of my work is photography and watercolor. The different mediums allow me to express various sensibilities. Photography is about capturing a special moment as well as exploring the abstract qualities of subjects in nature and architecture. I strive to find an unusual angle, perspective or lighting that challenges the usual way of viewing the subjects. I do very little editing or altering  of my photographs. 

My paintings of landscapes, nature and still life reflects observation and study expressed with my own unique vision and mood. My objective is to create thoughtful, engaging work so the viewer will want to linger.
