Artist Statement
Many years walking has taught me to seek with my camera eye objects often overlooked with strange shapes and reflections. Small things such as packing tape stuck to an old desk. The images are studied and then choices are assembled and at times deconstructed. Beauty reveals itself in some of the most unusual
places. The work suggests itself … then I do my best to give the images wings. When and sometimes… all the pieces come together.
