Each of my prints begins with a photograph that captures a unique moment in time and a unique perspective of place. Each image reflects an emotion that I often amplify or further develop in my digital darkroom with an eye to producing a final print or canvas that will personally connect with you, the viewer.
If, for example, you linger on one of my black and white landscapes and you feel the expanse, or possibly loneliness, of space and place, then I have accomplished my purpose. If you view one of my canvas prints, edited to impart the quality of color, texture and stroke distinctive to the art of painting, and you are drawn back to a memorable vacation or of a special place lived long ago, then I have accomplished my purpose.
And if you decide to purchase one of my pieces to place on a wall in your home or office, then I would be honored and would have exceeded my expectations.
I live in Austin, Texas and spend quite a bit of time with my photography in the Texas Hill Country, but also venture across the state, across the country, frequently to Northern Colorado, and on rare occasion, across the world.
