Artist's Statement

Having inexorable curiosity and requisite need to believe that anything is possible, my style of photography captures what is, asks, “What if…” and expresses, “Why not?”

Why? I believe that one’s potential is greater than one’s current state; and, given time, love and guidance, what isn’t seen can be.

This curiosity is largely due to being the parent of identical triplet boys who all were also diagnosed with varying degrees of Autism. The dramatized renderings of my original photographs are reminiscent of their colorful personalities, melodramatics and quick temperaments. Their current state and challenges do not define who they are or what they will become.

Hence, hidden potential is what I look for in all things. I would imagine that this is what we all want: for others to recognize and believe in our potential, even in our most awkward moments.

Through the artistic manipulation of my photographs, I hope you find the creativity in my “artography” contemplative and inspirational—and that you are fervently encouraged to remain open to all of life’s possibilities.
