Artist Statement

I often find myself on a journey, looking to embrace the beauty found in our national parks and quiet back roads of the United States. My artistic goal is in realizing photography as an emotional experience of places, where life can be intensely experienced. I attempt the dramaticuse of color, balance, mood and light to intensify the viewer’s sense of vision, discovery and acceptance. Through my photographic experiences it is my hope that audiences realize the responsibility we have as caretakers of these lands and this great planet. May you share that vision, to cherish and sustain these national treasures.
