a Connection with place.
“My work takes flight when I encounter skies reminiscent of those in Turner paintings, which I then interpret digitally, resulting in images depicting ethereal and ghostlike skies that loom over subservient landscapes below.
A professional photographer for over three generations, experienced working for advertising, editorial and corporate clients on both sides of the Atlantic, my connection with place occurred recently (2015), when I submitted myself to the elements, light and landscapes of Ireland, the country of my birth (and then Georgia, USA, where I lived for 6 years)– resulting in an immersive connection with place, as I connect with the primordial soul of the landscapes I explore.”
Discovery of the abstract –
“As I continue on this journey of discovery I find myself drawn to the abstract, where shape, direction and tone within the sky space take precedence over that below, taking me to a place where fantasy and instinct lead me to new creative discoveries.”
