Haiku is a Japanese short form of poetry that consists of brief, unrhymed lines typically about nature and seasons. This series, Winter Haiku, is my attempt to translate the essence and emotion of written Haiku with the power of visual representation via a photographic image. The elements of my visual Haiku is brevity, simplicity, and suggestive of an emotion. The image tends to remove all distractions and allows one to focus on a moment in time; creating a space to pause and reflect on the simple elements of day-to-day life.

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
