I tend to shoot photos intuitively, much like keeping a visual journal. When I have my camera in hand, I’m very actively engaged with my surroundings. As such, photography is my gateway for connecting to the world around me, and communicating what I feel.
With that, I strive to illuminate the simple beauty that is all around us. I want to reveal an unnoticed gesture, focus on parts of the whole or draw the viewer into a world not before seen. I hope that people come away with new insights, another way to see the familiar.
A friend once told me that when she looked at my photographs, it was like looking into another world, like a peephole into a secret garden. Another said that certain images invite her in, giving her a haven from hectic times.
Currently, I am a member of Art Works Downtown in San Rafael and have been in numerous exhibitions there, as well as at Falkirk Mansion, the fine art exhibits at Marin County Fair, plus local venues. I’ve also had a number of solo shows at Mill Valley’s City Hall.
