Artist Statement and Bio
My inspiration evolves naturally from my surroundings. The beauty and discord found in the simplicity of every day life, people and events compose a palette from which I create my images. A single moment captured, frozen in time, stirs my innate creative process. "Art is the freedom to draw your own conclusions.” I strive to draw the viewer in, engaging them in the decisive moment of the captured image. My photographic eye is my looking glass into the world.
