Although there are many gifted photographers out there today, my own appreciation of photography came through my discovery of some of the “old masters” – Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz and my personal favorite, Henri Cartier-Bresson. I would have to say, though, that my major influences came from my love of the painters of the impressionist era – Monet, Pissarro, Cezanne, Seurat, Matisse, Gauguin. I love the soft, pleasing brush strokes in their work and the luster of the colors they used. In taking photographs I try to compose shots that one could get lost in – as though one were looking through a window or into a kaleidoscope. My hope is that people may appreciate my views of the beauty of nature as well as the beauty that man can create and thus feel fulfilled for a small amount of time in our complicated lives.
