My images are based on photographs and then digitally manipulated using Photoshop and various filters to give a vision of the essence of a scene rather than an exact recording of the scene. 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 single stem, the shape of a barely discernible mountain in the distance, the form in a pile of rocks.
