Artist Statement

All of us have a deep connection to places and landscapes from our past. Through our memories, we see these places not as they are, but through the filter of emotion. My recent work explores the emotional qualities of landscapes where I feel a deep connection. My work is not about capturing reality, but creating a neo-Romantic world reflective of my memory and imagination.

About my process

I photograph and express these landscapes using my iPhone and iPad. Using my iPhone gives me the freedom to capture what I see unencumbered by a heavy camera. Later, the images I capture become the raw material. Using my iPad, I manipulate these images through the layering of textures and colors to express my emotional response to the landscape.  I create landscapes inspired by 19th century Romantic paintings with 21st century technology.
