I began taking photographs at a very young age. Though I didn’t always realize it, as I look back over 50 years of work I can see that the exploration of solitude has always been the driving force behind my work.
I strive to capture and convey in my work a sense of solitude. My images capture quiet landscapes that instill a sense of self-awareness and invite reflection. In my images the world of noise and chaos fall away and the viewer is invited to reflect on quieter spaces.
Each image is carefully crafted, the colors and tones balanced to create depth. My palette is filled with billions of colors. I wield those colors to create mood and atmosphere – to convey the sense of solitude I seek as I work.
“Solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely. It is a positive and constructive state of engagement with oneself. Solitude is desirable, a state of being alone where you provide yourself wonderful and sufficient company.
Solitude is a time that can be used for reflection, inner searching or growth or enjoyment of some kind. Deep reading requires solitude, so does experiencing the beauty of nature. Thinking and creativity usually do too.”

I will continue searching for solitude. Wish me luck and I hope that you will enjoy the fruits of my search.
