I have been taking pictures since boyhood, but my current preoccupations are with
transforming photographs of flowers and other objects from nature into mandala-like
images, and in directly photographing the natural world. My work is inspired by the
paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe and Claude Monet, the nature photographs of Andreas
Feininger, and the flower images of Harold Feinstein, with whom I briefly studied.
Making these images feels as if I am in wordless conversation with elements far more
profound than anything I could create myself. The experience of photographing and
of editing is reminiscent of meditation. Click GALLERIES to see more examples of
my work and to buy or license images.
Currently, I run a blog called Flower Mandalas on the spirituality portal Beliefnet.com,
where I hope to promote using art as a means for healing and personal transformation
— the primary purposes it has served for me. See the LINKS page for connections to
this blog and other related websites.
