Artist Statement

Abstractions in Nature, Trees, Ocean and Sky

Abstractions that occur naturally, are something that I look for while taking photographs. I seek abstractions that nature creates and try to capture them with my camera The images, whether they are illuminated from behind, taken through glass or reflections of light from the surface in the water drops adding to their luminosity, they glow from within. There are also fleeting moments, a dance of sorts between the ocean, fog and light.

This series was shot in West Marin on the coast from Bolinas.

They all are my daytime Dreamscapes.
