Artist Statement

I have always been interested in nature, having grown up in an environment where a love of the outdoors was encouraged. For a long time I have been photographically studying abstract and random qualities found in nature, and am especially interested in pattern and reflection.

While traveling, I always take a camera and try to create images based on the places I have visited. Recently I visited the central highlands of Mexico inspiring many images, including the Neighboring Colors series, a photographic exploration of intersections of two properties sharing a common wall, some of which are shown here.
