Artist Statement

My background in photography is photojournalism - the art of telling a story through using composition, light, aperture, and the perfect timing of the shutter. Each of my paintings begins as an act of storytelling, a photograph, capturing a moment in time through the lens of my camera.  I then translate those images through my heart onto the canvas, allowing for a more subjective articulation of my experience.  

In combining my photography and painting, my work has evolved into an expression of my gratitude and enthusiasm for life as it comes, and my unique way of viewing it. In creating and sharing my work with the world I hope to help my viewers connect with the abundance of the present moment, and bring something positive into their lives.
