My Artist Statement:

“I have always gravitated toward photographs that border on the unconventional, reflecting my love of color and reflections. Primarily, I seek out unusual relationships between color and form in surprising settings, creating photos that look more like paintings. About six years ago, I started taking photos of boats in water, combining that love of colors and reflections. I spend a lot of time prowling around marinas throughout the world, seeking out magical combinations of color, line, shape and reflection to create these unusual images. In many cases, it might take a first time viewer a few minutes to realize that the photo is actually a boat in water.”
