My artistic passion involves revealing the unique beauty found in the most simple moments and places. I often see in a painterly way, having inherited an acute awareness of color, shape, mood and light from my beloved mother, who was a renaissance woman of many talents.
I began my creative career as a musician, playing guitar and singing in local pubs, as well as booking and hosting an original music show. The moment I picked up my first camera, I intuitively felt a connection between music and photography. For me, creativity originates from one inner source, yet the expression of that creative energy can take multiple forms.
Photographing local NYC musicians was a natural starting point for my career. Eventually I expanded my work to include shooting a wide range of portraiture and events. Regardless of the subject matter, my goal has always been to impart an element of freshness, spontaneity and risk taking to the creative process.
The last several years have seen a major shift in my creative focus, to that of fine art photography. I’m a natural born adventurer/explorer, and as such I seek to reveal unique elements of light, water, beauty and seasonal changes in a variety of environments.
My photos lend themselves particularly well to large size printing. One of my favorite formats is to print on dye-sublimated aluminum. Printing on aluminum imbues an image with an inherent richness and depth; the finished artwork is both durable and archival. And because there is no glass or plexi layer separating the image from the viewer, the work literally seems to pop with vivid color and life.
Simply stated, my goal is to help bring a sense of peace, color and beauty to the places where we live and work- be it a private home, corporate or hospitality environment. I’m excited to share my work with you!
