|Why do I do what I do? I love the visual arts. I process information more clearly through images than through printed text. I see the world in photographs. People and places stimulate me. Photography allows me to capture these moments of stimulation. Growing up in rural, northern Vermont, I was surrounded by the beauty of farmland, dirt roads, country churches, run-down barns, and family cemeteries often found in the middle of a hayfield. I consider myself lucky to have grown up in such beautiful surroundings and believe that this is what inspires the artist within me. When I am photographing, my focus is on the details rather than the big picture. I want to draw attention to imperfections, textures, and the form of the objects that reveal their beauty. I try to capture things that go unnoticed in the larger picture. I look for light and the way it falls on an object. Sometimes light itself, with its changing hues and tones can become the object of the photography. Having worked for several years in a corporate atmosphere, I know the workday can be very routine. Here at Plattsburgh State University, I have learned that as an artist I can be an individual. Recognizing this has helped me to know what I want and donít want out of life. I aspire to create a body of work that will be appreciated. I hope one day my images will be remembered and treasured.|
