In my images, I try to create a feeling
of place and time so the observer sensually enters the scene. Images of animals, birds or flowers, I feel, should be portraits
within their environment rather than just recorded images. Influenced strongly by the work of Elliot Porter and Richard Brown,
I attempt to generate interest through “rhythms and echoes,” that is, through repeated and reoccurring patterns,
and a sense of centripetal and centrifugal motion. When composing many images, I look for patterns that can become playful
eye puzzles. Although the majority of my images are realistic and pictorial, some images are manipulated with photo editing
software, thereby taking photography into a mixed media art form.
