Artist's Statement

I was introduced to photography at age 7 when my parents provided me with a Kodak Instamatic and the liberty to make photographs during our sightseeing trips to various points of interest throughout Europe. While wandering around Europe armed with my instamatic, I felt like a great explorer about to uncover something new. My early attempts with the Instamatic did not yield any successful photographs; however, the process did force me to take a closer look at the objects and scenes that I encountered. While none of my early photographs exist physically, they still exist as vivid memories of that time period in my childhood. A decade later my passion for photography really took hold when I was introduced to the darkroom and learned the technical side of the photographic medium. After becoming proficient with the photographic process, I quickly learned that I could express my vision and ideas through photography.

Exhibitions & Awards

Since 1999 I have received several awards and I have exhibited my work in various juried and invitational exhibitions through out the South Eastern United States. My work is held in both permanent and private collections.
