I am an artist who works with photography. I slow down into my own zen-like state so that I can look at the world around me in my own way. Some of my photos don't show easily recognizable forms; others do. The photos may present a factual reality, or an illusion to engage your imagination. My goals are to have the viewer slow down and look more than once; to look beyond the surface; to rethink ideas about otherwise ordinary things. I will have done my job if viewers are drawn into the photograph, into the here and now, and feel a renewed interest in the world around them.
