Imagery to calm the mind and soothe the soul… Still & moving images to promote peace through awareness of the wonder of being.

My life brought me to a still hopeful present where I offer you work that I hope you find beautiful and soothing. Certainly my work representing nature is a closer representation of my faith in the supremacy of the natural world and the magnificence of the universe than any of the conceptual work I’ve produced. That made me infamous but the work was an indirect statement, a pointing at a reflection of the moon. My new work is just so, plain, direct, an image of the moon itself.

These still images are impressionistic more than representative. They’re meant to evoke a mood more than a place even as they are an anchor to the wonder of our world

In the end, I can spew a lot of hyperbole and rationale but it all comes down to the fact that I want to be one with nature. I want to depict that in my work and be that in my life.
