"Abstract forms ...remembered, dreamed, imagined.”
"I took my first photographs as a young child growing up in Coronado, a seaside town near San Diego, California, with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye my father gave me. His enthusiasm for photography inspired me. I am particularly interested in macro photography and in capturing overlooked details and exploring miniature worlds hidden in ordinary objects, and in the relationship of color, light, shadow, form, perception, and imagination.
My abstract photography captures forms of water and variations of light, all interacting with glass. Each image provides an unrepeatable glimpse of water at the macro level, its forms, natural patterns, and chance combinations that constantly change during the process of capturing the image. The images are titled, but they are open to interpretation by viewers, guided by their own intuition, perceptions, experiences, and memories. The images invite an interaction between the image and the imagination of the viewer. The photographer sees one thing in these abstract images. What do you see?"
