artist’s statement


My newest images comment on the passage of time and the depth to be found in experience. My work brings me close to nature: I grow the plants, often from seed, then I watch them and photograph them at various points in their cycle. Using Photoshop, I combine single images into many-layered compositions.

The nearly imperceptible variations of energy, experience and emotion fascinate me. My pictures are best understood on a sensual, nonlinear level. I use memory, scale, and the physical world to encourage a non-verbal experience.

My point is for the viewer to feel, and thereby access the subtle, emotional, perceptive aspects of being.
