  • Biography:

    I work with what already exists.

    I see beauty in the ordinary.

    Without intention, I find myself unexpectedly captivated and compelled by texture, light, form, and surprising detail. I see mystery in nature, in the work of human beings, and in the relationship between them.

    Fixed in a moment of time, still-life photographs leave the viewer to wonder what came before and what may happen next, which then becomes the dynamic—the conversation between the image and the viewer. The more abstract the image, the more it can be visited in the here and now as it is out of time and place.

    My work as a psychotherapist for more than thirty years has profoundly enhanced my appreciation of all things seen and unseen, known and unknown. Attuned listening, which is my professional craft, has affected my attuned visual sense and continues to give me, and I hope the viewer, a glance through my eyes.
