Artist Bio

I'm a fine art photographer. I've been chasing the light from coast to coast for more that 40 years. My wife and I live in Phoenix, but we like to come to Lincoln to visit her mother and brother, and meet new people. I shoot everything but most of what I shoot ends up looking like flowers. I look for parts that reveal wholes, shadows that define light, abstracts that stretch particulars. I go where my eye takes me and let the scene work me over until the light changes, my knees ache, and the feeling goes away. When everything works, I come away with images that surprise and intrigue and speak in a way I cannot. The result, I hope, is a dialogue between scene and audience.

Artist Statement

I create limited edition photographic prints of floral scenes on canvas and paper from 35mm slides. I look for parts that reveal wholes, shadows that define light, abstracts that stretch particulars. I go where my eye takes me and let the scene work me over until the light changes, my knees ache, and the feeling goes away. When everything works, I come away with images that surprise and intrigue and speak in a way I cannot. The result, I hope, is a dialogue between scene and audience.
