Artist's Statement

I have a varied and passionate interest in art and photography, but it is my curiosity for landscape and the affects and effects of man on the land that ties my work together. I am most interested in the ways humans interact and are affected by the land in which they live, the politics of land use (and abuse) and ultimately, how we define our ideas of home. What is revealed to us by the ordinary elements of a community, what is unselfconsciously discovered? We define ourselves by what intimate nature of place, by what odor in the air, what line of horizon, what quality of light?
