Artist Statement

Claude Monet said, “... a landscape does not exist in its own right since its appearance changes at every moment.”  I agree that nature is ever changing and strive to capture its unique moments in the mysterious world of waterscapes. Here, natural light, wind, currents and seasons all work in conjunction to create dynamic scenes that change faster than the blink of an eye.

For me, a waterscape isn’t just about tenuous moments.  It’s about an unknown realm that reveals a brief look into another world where your imagination can run free.  It’s where you find colors and patterns rife with personality and where you feel the juxtaposition of opposing emotions - peace and excitement, fear and courage, sorrow and happiness. 

In this photographic series, I wanted to capture the many moods of a fantastic world through the transient effects of light and atmosphere as they interact with and alter the surface of water. These images reveal the ways in which the sun, sky and other natural phenomena fuse to create beautiful impressions.  I hope you enjoy viewing these fluid impressions of a moment in time as much as I enjoyed creating them.
