ARTISTIC STATEMENT
As an artist, the photographic process enables me to capture what my mind is thinking and what my eye is seeing at a specific moment in time. Each image is an autobiography of observed experiences and collected memories based on my understanding of the world around me, influenced by the juxtapositions and interactions of the natural universe with the man made world, drawing inspiration from nature, landscapes, architecture, and the animal kingdom. They are a personal expression of visual storytelling, rooted in a desire to explore hidden truths, historic context and a sense of time. My images are defined by light, inspired by imagination, informed by intuition, and motivated by a natural curiosity “to see more”.
