My photographic images are rooted in the deep connection I feel with nature and an acute awareness of patterns and textures in the natural and built world. My compositions also reflect my ranching family background and my background as a landscape architect, and musician.
I experience a pulse of connection when I am in nature, while I am with horses and feeling their wonderful energy and spirit, and when I am absorbed by weather and light. Before and while I photograph, I observe and take time to feel this pulse and explore my subjects and surroundings. This practice allows me to build more intimate relationships with them that hopefully results in my ability to see, feel, and capture their essence.
In much of my recent work, I have created composite images, delighting in a new and engaging perspective. This work is intriguing to me as it combines subjects with elements of form, shape, texture, and pattern that enhance and complement one another. These images for me are like visual lyrical expressions where there is rhythm and mystery.
My photographic work is found in private art collections across the U.S. as well as in medical, commerce, and hospitality settings.
