Artist Statement:

The Art of Photography changes like the light.

Chasing light in all it's ranges

propels my photographic inspiration.

Each moment introduces a refreshing perspective,

taking this photographer

on a never-ending journey of discovery

to capture beauty in the world we share.  

Exploring and working in the arts is a lifelong passion.

Art Curation for Exhibitions, Urban and Rural spaces

collectively challenge and evolve my artistic vision.
