I am a ‘colorist’ at heart and thrive when playing with color in my abstract works. My photography works focus mainly on nature, the intricate textures, shapes and shadows she creates on her own. I shoot those images, always thinking of what they can ‘become’; I am a painter with a camera. I then twist and tweak them to make them my own ‘nature photographic abstractions’. Sometimes you can see the original image and sometimes not, it all depends on where the muse takes me. I believe the true photographer moves to get the shot, they do not wait for the shot to ‘happen’, they make it happen. I think of this medium as working with Mother Nature, rather than against her.
