My goal as an artist is to connect with you—to create works that not only catch your eye, but engage your soul. I want you to feel the crisp morning mist rising from the Seine, sense the gentle breeze blowing across Monmartre at sunset, and become mesmerized by the water flowing through the fountains at Luxembourg Palace. I seek to show you what it would feel like to shake hands with the characters you’ve read about, and to slide in and out of their shadows just as though you were walking in their steps. I hope you find beauty in what I’ve captured and created, but even more than that, I wish for a brief moment to transport your soul to that wondrous Moveable Feast. I believe that art is a connection with the viewer. I try and create works that engage the viewer; that offer more than just cursorily consideration. Not just a pretty picture but an experience. Details of interest, storytelling, underlying meanings, and sensory reactions are intended and added to enrich the viewer’s experience. I want you to feel the crisp morning on Lake Superior, or the sounds of the waterfalls at Tahquamenon. I also want you to imagine that you could shake hands with the characters, and wonder at the meaning behind an expression. I want you to be able to see into deep pools and shadows, canyons and galaxies. I love photographing and painting the subjects that surround me and see beauty everywhere.
