My experience with dramatic contrasts of land and seascapes gave me an intense appreciation for black and white photography. In my fascination with these contrasts, black and white has always seemed a great choice of medium to explore my art. 

Abstracting a scene with black and white allowed me to think about these forms as composition, texture, contour, light and shadow. I continue to be intrigued by the way light plays with natural or manmade forms be they weathered wood, trees in snow, rocks on a beach or the contour and texture of a woman’s form.
