I have always been a photographer, but creating fine art photography has now become a passion and a path to learning and personal expression. My work is often described as painterly, an effect I strive to achieve through my eye as an artist, my sense of composition, and my knowledge and use of the camera as a creative tool. I have come to understand that the central theme of my work—and my life—is to live and to create art that “soothes one’s soul.”
Most of my art occurs when I am walking outdoors. When I travel, I am overwhelmed by the beauty and wonder of everything: views, people, animals, grand sights, and tiny details. My travel series include Scotland, China, Italy, Australia/New Zealand, Zion National Park, and New England, as well as Georgia and the US South. It is harder to recognize beauty in the commonplace of my daily routine at home in Watkinsville, GA, but with my camera, I have come to see differently in local settings as well.
