    Artist Statement
    Photography gives me the ability to share pieces of my life with those around me. When I look through the lens of my camera, I see a canvas upon which I can share the beauties of the world in which we live. I capture individual moments of time and place and bring them to life in my photographs. I am not so much concerned with conveying the exact details of what I see as I am with conveying the experience I have lived. Photography is your window into my world. Enjoy!
