Artist Statement

Using photography I share my fascination with the intricate design that is in all things, both natural and man-made. Choosing subjects that demonstrate form seamlessly following function. The intersection where simplicity and complexity work in unison. My photographs are an effort to produce visual tributes to this extraordinary conjuncture.
