Beginning with my first introduction to photography in my youth, I have been intrigued and inspired by the photographic process.
A recurring theme within my work involves a fascination with time as it relates to the static image. I explore the camera's ability to stop, stretch, slow or stack up fragments of time within the frame. I combine a variety of conventional photographic techniques with various forms of camera and subject motion to create oftentimes unconventional results. My images tend towards an abstract interpretation, demonstrating a willingness to forego a literal capture of what the camera sees, in favour of exploring a more personal vision.
Whether the subject matter is Canadian landscapes, still life, portraiture, underwater photography or the portrayal of native orchids, wildflowers and fungi, I attempt to seek out the beauty and share the wonderment which I find both at my doorstep and on my travels. As a long time resident of the Parry Sound district, I enjoy exploring our area's rich flora, fauna and landscapes. Hiking along the trails or out in a kayak among the islands of the Georgian Bay, I find endless inspiration in the beauty and majesty of this place which I am privileged to call home.
As well as gallery representation, I participate in several local artists groups and contribute to group shows. My photography is in private collections in North American, the EU and as far afield as Asia and Australia.
