My work explores the psychology of visual interpretation. I strive to challenge the viewer's perception of photographic images, and how individuals synthesize photography and art, to bring a deeper experience observing their environment.  Often abstract, the photographs are  a record of the world around me as it is requiring thought and reflection intertwining realism and metaphoric representation as a means to create dialogue about the images.


I am fascinated with the convergence of art and technology, especially with respect to photography and attempt to meld the two into a visual storyline expressed by the viewer, rather than by me.  Six of the nine Collections the photographs are created in-camera and do not employ special software filters to achieve a specific image effect except for standard image processing; Architectural Moonscapes and the Liquid Flowers Collections are the two exceptions.


During the last 18 years I have produced the following Collections:

   • People Around Us, 2016

   • Architectural Moonscapes, 2014

   • Abstract Thoughts, 2014

   • Natural Surroundings, 2013 - 2014

   • Street Photography, 2013 - On-going

   • Individual Personae, 2012 – 2013

   • Photo Anagram Images, 2008 - 2011

   • Unaltered State of Reality, 2008 - 2011

   • Liquid Flowers Series, 2001 - 2007


My interest integrating art and technology continues to expand from the photography app, BeMUZE, in 2011, to the recent Architectural Moonscapes Collection that combines architectural photography with digital image composing.
