Artist's Statement

When I started photographing, the people who knew me were always puzzled by the apparent dichotomy between the calm, romantic beauty of my photographs and the energetic pace of my lifestyle. I have come to realize that these two forces are not in discord but in harmony. They comprise the duality of my Yin and Yang.

Beyond the demands of daily living, I have always strived to experience grace, beauty, and harmony in my life. My art is one way I take the time to record and share these experiences.  I am instinctively attracted to subjects that convey these qualities. In my work I use composition, form and color to emphasize them. The camera allows me to edit out all distractions, so that I am left with the pure pleasure of the experience.

As you browse through my seascape, landscape, Philadelphia, Rittenhouse Square or my other Galleries my painterly approach to  fine art photography is obvious.
