There is beauty in moments that pass us by so quickly. I am inspired to create an image by light, movement, color, subject, feeling, or any combination i. I work through 5 interconnected steps – seeing, capturing, editing, printing, and reflecting. No one step is more important than the other. Each step in making the finished image, if an image is ever finished, provides more clarity. While my work presents the way I see and feel about the world in those elusive moments, the work is open to the viewer to bring their story, to complete the work. What do you see?
