From the Brownie to the iPhone, I have used photography to capture events, portraits and the beautiful and commonplace objects of everyday life. These photos taken with a Canon Powershot S95, are a departure for me, in that the subjects are staged. I have placed flowers from our garden in front of my abstract paintings. Most floral arrangements taken indoors have neutral backgrounds. With these I am exploring shape and color, nature and (the) man-made, to create complex fantasy worlds which directly engage and hopefully enchant the viewer.

STILL LIFE PAINTINGS
In my painting, I enjoy bringing life to inanimate objects (my cast of characters) and setting up relations between them that are more formal than psychological. I like to finish the small pieces in one setting without preliminary drawing. I make changes along the way, not corrections, because I am not striving for realism.
