I appreciate the way art can express all aspects of life, from its most bleak to its most exuberant. Art reflects our world, but is also a world of iits own, and I feel privileged to be able to participate in it.
Sometimes for me the simple pleasure of capturing beauty and style is enough, while at other times meaning and content become more important. I like to crop photographs radically, pushing an image until its content becomes ambiguous. It is then perceived as both realistic and abstract, making the work more dynamic and interactive.
I maintain dual careers as an artist and as a psychotherapist. I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art, a Masters Degree in Psychology, and I am a published author. I have exhibited my artwork since 1975. My work as a therapist has given me an understanding of how subjective perspective influences our perceptions, and how perception then shapes our experience. This understanding inspires and infuses my art.
