Photography is all about painting with light. I have a strong desire to frame the world around me and capture the light reflecting off of the objects we see everyday. I am rarely without one of my cameras, and some of my best images have been made when I least expected to find an image with interesting lighting. Light sets a tone or mood and helps create a feeling that I hope I can relay to the observer. I like to experiment with vibrant color as well as play with the composition of black and white images in creative ways. In the past decade, the computerized “darkroom” has opened a whole new world in which I can paint with light and share my images with others. I studied photography while I was a student at Aquinas College and have taken several courses and workshops since then. My photography has been on display and has won awards in the Muskegon Museum of Art’s West Michigan Regional Arts Competitions and Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts.
