Plays of light dazzle and inspire me. It can be the dancing dappling light through trees, reflections on water or simply the way it strikes a wall. The myriad patterns of light and nature are wonderfully challenging  to capture. Light is so full of mood and so fleeting that it speaks of the moment like nothing else.

In my portrait work, I am seeking the real being behind the mask of face and body, trying to pull forth their positive attributes -- be it openness, friendliness, the subject's inner strength, intelligence, creativity, faith -- those   good things I see in people. This is what I want to capture and show; that being.

In my work, I simply try to share such things that I have found delight in, with the hope that the viewer will take delight in them also - visions that spoke to me that I wanted to share.
