artist statement

I make pictures of people, places and things near and dear to me; unguarded and in their element.  I am interested in highlighting moments that might easily be missed, thus giving the viewer an opportunity to reflect upon the grace, or chaos or uncertainty contained in the moment, as the case may be.  My intent is to invoke an appreciation of the familiar while acknowledging its vulnerability and impermanence.  I imagine that viewers are prompted to insert themselves in the experience to evoke memories or suggest a narrative of their own.


I was a Fleischer Challenge artist in 2000-2001 and a member artist of Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art from 2006-2011.  My work is in numerous private collections.
