Artist Statement

My chosen art form is photography and I shoot mainly nature and scenics in southern Manitoba and surrounding areas.  Sometimes my travels take me across Canada or even further to other parts of the world.   I especially enjoy historic places and “wild places” where the intrusion of humans is less evident.

I strive for pictures that show an aspect of something that would be only rarely or never visible to the observer.  Examples include unusual weather or lighting conditions, motion of clouds or water and photos of live insects and butterflies in the field showing more detail than can be seen with the naked eye.

Taking the photo is only the first part of the creative process.  I prefer a natural look in prints and work hard to apply my knowledge and experience to create prints that truly reflect the original scenes.  For the last few years I have been creating short runs of giclee prints for other artists and find it very satisfying to produce a print essentially indistinguishable from the original art work.
