A warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting!

To create brings me much joy. True to my nature I use many different mediums to express myself, one of these being photography. I’m an amateur photographer who basically just loves using this outlet for my creativity.

I’ve an appreciation for fine detail, the smallest little thing won’t go unnoticed. I write sometimes, when the muse taps me on the shoulder, you will find some of my thoughts here too…

Art is a human activity consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through, and that other people are infected by these feelings and also experience them ~ Tolstoy.

The value of art, then, is one with the value of empathy.

This is why I take photos.

Hope you enjoy!
