Photography is how I share my curiosity about the world - my joy, my respect for people and other cultures, my love of color, shapes and forms and the simple pleasures of seeing.
When I borrowed my cousin’s camera at age 20, I had no idea I was beginning a lifelong love affair with photography. I participated in two semesters at sea through the “World Campus Afloat” program at Chapman University, studying as we circumnavigated the globe, camera in hand.
Early images focused on people and places, challenging me to capture both their look and feel. For example, my photo book, Being in Paris, shares images of my personal look at a beloved and visually rich city.
Largely influenced by the Impressionists and Expressionists, my latest images are freer and more exploratory than before. I am challenged to share my insights.
I’m making images in a new way. I’m revisiting images in my photo library, rediscovering what I’ve already seen and feeling refreshed in anticipation of what is yet to be seen.
