 I draw from textures and patterns that I see in the natural world and infuse them with a sense of mystery and spirituality. I continue to drift further into the ethers of my imagination.  This direction leaves me completely unfettered to create in a limitless environment.  The departure from a more rigid and traditional photographic discipline is more in keeping with the adventurer/explorer part of my personality.  I have found that by using my images as a “jumping off place”, I see my photographs as raw material whose hidden beauty and mystery need to be realized.  I remember hearing the great master of landscapes Ansel Adams say that he considered his negatives the raw material for his work…and that the real creativity took place for him in the darkroom.  As I am sure he did, I enjoy my time in the field with my camera, but it is when I am working  with   my images  on  my computer that the real creativity unfolds for me.  Each image is an exploration and journey where I never know where the process will take me…. I never have a plan for where I am going…. But I let the creative and intuitive process unfold from within me.  It is exciting during those days and hours when I sense something magical is happening and feel the momentum building within until intuitively I know….  “it is done”.  It is a wonderful and magical process…intoxicating…I wish I could bottle it……
