I am fascinated by the beauty, essence and changing complexion of landscapes. I enjoy them most in the quiet moments—in the soft light of sunrise and sunset, on winter days when trees bare their bones, and on foggy mornings when less is visible and the world doesn’t seem quite so complicated. Whether natural, designed or cultural landscapes, I enjoy exploring them over time, finding the “fingerprints” that give them character and capturing a sense of place. I also have a passion for plants and other natural objects, and often gather them on walks or travels to bring back to my studio to study and photograph.
