I am inspired by the creative world around us.  The color harmonies of nature, the pose of a model, the beauty of line, shape and the effects of light as they all interact to tell a wonderful story of beauty and creation.  I strive to capture these scenes in a way that resonates with the viewer and brings joy, hope and goodness into their lives.
