I have been an artist of some form or another my entire life. For many years my prefered outlet was dance, in fact I was a professional ballet dancer for 10 years. Following that I became a teacher, choreographer and artistic director. That was all cut short by some pretty severe health issues and I spent a substantial period of time trying to figure out a new outlet for my intense creative desires. Enter photograpy. I love the pure images of nature...where my job is to merely record the brilliance of what is. I also however truly enjoy taking existing images and making of them something completely new and with it's own unique life and presence. To create is to be closer to the Universe...and we were all born with the innate ability to create.
