Artist Statement
My images are photographic reality by origin and impressionist in their presentation. They are created in-camera and post-camera by using special digital techniques to infuse a an Impressionist feeling that avoids the blind use of digital software applications. I feel that this Impressionistic approach gives a sense of vibrancy that is difficult with traditional photography. My goal is to represent reality while presenting a climate of emotion that transcends reality. The impressionist approach is more insightful to me than reality. Also my emphasis is on the positive facets of life. I avoid demeaning and sensationalist images; there is enough of that already in the world. I see life as a gift from God that becomes more precious with each passing moment, and I want to share that feeling.
