A typical scene in a Japanese garden. A small water basin made of stone with flowing water and bamboo ladle is used in a purification ritual of hands and mouth. The Zen meaning is “what one has is all one needs”. If you learn to be satisfied with the things as they are, then you are spiritually rich, while if you’re not content then you are spiritually poor, even if you’re materially wealthy. Ultimately, this represents pure Zen.

I am a visual explorer. Explore the potential. Engage your soul. Escape reality. This succinctly describes my artistic philosophy and why photography is my passion. My images celebrate quotidian life and ranges from vibrant contemplative abstracts, to fine art, and interpretive/documentary portraits of landscapes. The use of natural lighting and environmental factors adds a sense of emotional drama and often elicits creative interpretations that are contemplative, offering more than “just a pretty picture”. My sparks of creative inspiration come from other art forms and a variety of sources like observing the design performance of a glass blower, or most likely just a walk in the woods. Overall I strive to make a visceral connection with the viewer; a visual conversation within the frame. My signature style tends to evoke an elegant simplicity of design, oftentimes with a layer of complexity that hovers behind the façade. I embrace the solitude of nature, capture the common and unique, and reveal the wonderment to convey imagery that transcends the ordinary.More About Artist
