     Artist Statement

I have had the good fortune to travel extensively to many countries and know I have but a moment to photograph and capture a form, an expression, a light or a thought. My eye has to respond quickly to capture an image and/or a feeling, for each road I walk, I will unlikely travel this road again. There are no timely set-ups, lengthy observations, special lighting or quiet studios.


Upon returning home, the image is analyzed, sculpted and revitalized to reflect the feeling it initially created. I work with each image, until I find a perfect combination of color, grace, energy, light and sparkle, maintaining its integrity and emotion.


The beauty of form and color which is found everywhere from the most mundane to the most majestic evokes within me deep appreciation. A Buddhist monk reading in a doorway at the oldest Buddhist temple in China, the glistening parade mask in Venice, a statuette outside São Paulo, an old lady counting her money in Kiev, the resting butterfly at Xochimilco in Mexico,  the explosive abstraction from floor where a painter was completing his or her art at Rubell Gallery in Miami, all make me feel alive.
