Artist Reception: September 16 at 5:30pm

Art is the window to the creative soul. It makes us think; it makes us feel; it makes us respond; whether it be positive or negative. Each viewer sees the image in her/his own way, bringing a personal perspective and life-experience to the process.My initial inspiration to record the world around me through photography was a month-long trip through Greece, Israel & Egypt in 1992. I enjoy observing cultures different from my own, and being awed by ancient ruins and sites previously glimpsed only in books. The images I create are both color and black & white, and may incorporate hand-coloring.The focus of my art is capturing people and natural scenes in a way that honors the uniqueness of each subject. I aim to share the variety of culture and beauty I have observed in my travels and in my home states of California and Montana. The goal of my images is to leave the observer with a sense of wonder and a new connection to the surrounding world.I enjoy the magic of bringing images to life through photography, and the camaraderie and inspiration shared with fellow photographers and artists.
