Artist Statement (last revised February 4, 2019):
My subject matter has been outdoor landscapes and abstracts, natural and urban, in color or black and white. I also use digital enhancement or manipulation of images. At this point I find architecture and artifact to offer better opportunities than nature for interesting compositions.
My intention in my work is to communicate the beauty of abstract art, and the beauty or intrigue of transient moments.
I am mostly self-taught as a photographer. Previously I studied classical piano, and then worked as a corporate computer programmer. I find inspiration for my images in my favorite music; my work experience in computers has enabled me to learn digital darkroom techniques more easily.
All work had been using 35mm film using a NIKON 6006 and NIKON lenses . For the past eight years I have been using a digital SLR, with Photoshop CS5 for editing and digital manipulations.
I generally print my own images, on paper archival to at least 100 years.
