My newest piece -- a desert abstract titled "Stillness" -- because it was in the desert where I first started to learn how to still my racing mind. This image was photographed in Cathedral Gorge, a Nevada State Park.

About

Artist's Statement

With digital SLR in hand I have set out on a journey of discovery upon paths both well worn and rarely tread upon. My photographs are the result of a wandering soul in search of a sense of solitude and peace. I am as much on an inward journey as an outward one, trying to grasp and hold a sense of the healing touch of tranquility that is often so lacking in the modern way of life.

The inspiration for what I photograph comes when I am fully present in a place for an ample amount of time. I see it, feel it, breathe in the smells, touch and sometimes even taste it (if I am photographing food that is). As I sit or stroll in stillness and am enjoying the beauty around me, the place begins to "speak" to me. The magic begins to reveal itself more deeply. One of the greatest joys in my life and work is when I am blessed with a gentle encounter with another sentient being who also loves and uses that particular place. Spending a moment looking into the eyes of a wild animal as we consider one another, or secretly observing it going about its business makes me feel more connected to the larger world around us. It fuels my passion.

While I love all wild places, I find particular inspiration in the Sierra Nevada mountains, and the high desert of the Great Basin...the people, the animals and the artifacts. It's a wonderland to me and I find particular pleasure in photographing this place I love in a way that shows its depth of spirit...the ghosts of the "Old" West along with the present features that make it such an exceptional place today.

I am currently venturing into the depths of the wide array of digital tools at my disposal, with the goal of creating scenes that mimic how our eyes see with their tremendous dynamic range of light, and to create scenes that we are only able to see in our dreams.

My imagery is representative of the secret garden of the soul. A safe place to be and play. I will have achieved my goal as an artist if my photography brings joy and beauty to people’s lives and spaces. I hope you enjoy my work!
