Has a neighbor ever remarked upon your garden’s beauty and your response was “it needs to be weeded” or “I should have chosen different flowers for that spot.” Do you have a tendency to look upon a beautiful scene and only see the flaws? My work stimulates the viewer to explore more deeply the way beauty is seen and experienced by removing much of the detail and leaving only the essence. In doing so I not only show you a scene but I also draw your eye to the larger facets that can get lost in an ordinary photograph. I encourage you to look upon the graceful arch of a tree, the shape of a barely discernable farm building in the fog, the stained glass look of a sunrise through fog. I invite you to look at the world differently.
