My visual signature has been greatly influenced by my mentor Ian McGuffie, formerly at Focal Point and now at Vancouver Institute for Media Arts. i.e. Debussy, Scriabin (synesthesia), Rachmaninoff, Schumann (also writer), painters i.e. Klimt, Van Gogh, Canadian Group of Seven, musicians i.e. Rostropovitch, Lang Lang and photographers i.e. Freeman Patterson, Ernst Haas.
Artist expression has no boundaries
Through my evolvement as a photographic artist, passion for the wonder and beauty of natural things, fascination for impressionistic paintings and musical composition and experimentation with the creative process, I have discovered and developed my own way of seeing. The result is color impressionism. My photography is a transformation and expresses “a visual kind of music”.
Imaginative design, an eye for nature’s beauty and a flair for originality characterize my emotional imagery
I consider myself a purist, “What you see in my images is exactly the way I compose the scene, nothing is added, nor removed from the scene”. My photographic artwork has received local, provincial and national recognition and professional acclamation of excellence.
