ARTIST STATEMENT My work primarily involves natural light out- door photography, using large format, medium format and 35mm film cameras. e images are scanned on a high-resolution scanner and printed on archival photographic papers and on canvas. ey are about scenes and locals that inspire a sense of the divine in nature and in our man-made world; a feeling that something greater than our- selves is at work. I want people to feel what I see - a visual representation of what I experienced when I was there. To be able to look at a two di- mensional image and imagine what it was like being there experiencing all five senses. My great- est challenge is in making good photographic im- ages uniting the schools of impressionism and realism in the tradition of classic painters such as Monet and Renoir and photographic artists as John Shaw, Ansel Adams, and David Muench.
