Artistically, I’m a photographer and writer of free verse and song.
My main interest is in creating impressionistic photography, although many times during the work, the approach may change to suit the final image.
Making an image has less to do with a subjective approach in the impression/expressionist forms. Everything is connected and interrelates at one level or another. The blending of color and tones reflects these interrelations. Fine details are but a small part of the story…not the story itself.
When I walk a trail, many times I stop with eyes closed and breathe in the earth’s sensory story. The connections created by this simple exercise helps me build my story(s). This is my motivation, to tell the story between soul and earth.

Amateurish and NOT Fine Art.

Ok, so I am in my 10th year as an amateur photographer. Dedicated, relentless, experimenting, discovering, always moving forward. I like to think those words describe my artistic walk. / Besides photography, I also paint, make videos, create music. The need to create is always there, every day to fill something in my life. I am not sure what the something is, but really, it is irrelevant. / I do…

Some of us live in the wild. / Some of us have to “go” somewhere to be with it. / When we do, through meditation the connection is repaired down to bone and marrow, spirit and soul. / [Video]

A Video Poem

[Video] / “The Sweetest Walk” / Of all there is / To do this day / In harried world / To hear, to say / None will meet / Nor lead, surpass / The sweetest walk / Of dust and grass / Where swallows meet / Their hallowed ground / To launch and dodge / In flightful bound / These we miss / Children, unaware / Though the young have eyes / The silent fair / Still, we’ll see / In water’s gra…
