Artist’s  Statement

Like many visual artists, I notice and capture. Then elements are arranged in the frame usually by moving closer.  I shoot mostly people, in action or at events, using wide angle lenses. 

I use Lightroom mainly, for making selections and editing, then printing,  matting and framing in my home workspace to complete the capture process. 

I enjoy travelling and then living with my images from other cultures because being there is the best way to learn.
