Artist Statement "My art’s purpose is to expose the extraordinary beauty and energy of the Natural world. I love to explore what hides at the threshold of perception or passes unseen or overlooked. My tool is the camera, but the perspective I choose and my subject matter can render images which are abstract and highly contemplative. The tiniest fungi, lensing and reflection within raindrops and dews, the interplay of water with plants, all offer fascinating glimpses into worlds where boundaries of our ordinary reality no longer apply. In my method I try to capture not only Nature’s tangible raw physical beauty, but also to express her spirituality, which I hope to expose and share through the artistic interpretations I create."
