Artist Statement

As a lifelong admirer of Georgia O’Keeffe’s work, I have utilized some of her approaches in my photography. I was not necessarily a floral photographer until I started photographing them with a macro lens. It was at this point that I fully understood Ms. O’Keeffe’s philosophy, “I have painted them big enough so others would see what I see.” Although all of my images are not shot with macro, I began to strive to make them large. Photography gives me the advantage of minute detail in their structure that I find fascinating. My goal is to couple the sensuality of this structure with an appealing, but bold aesthetic.
