Artist Statement

I prefer suggestion over accurate description. The world is pretty chaotic, speeding up, getting louder, and more visually dense. I am interested in finding and/or creating calm shelters from storm, places where quiet solitude is encouraged and inner contemplation is possible. I like to photograph the relationships and juxtapositions between the landscape and the structure we humans place and leave behind. I am attracted the time between events, the stories that are untold, the traces of our presence. I am often captivated by trees that I meet, lights shower on me, pathways that I take. There is an endless amount of subject matter that is completely irresistible. After all, the world is a beautiful place.
