My life has been filled with many blessings. One of the blessings I am most cognizant of and thankful for is the gift of sight, both the physical and the imaginative. My mission at this point in my life is to show my gratitude for this gift by honoring and documenting beauty and what I perceive to be the presence of spirit in all that I encounter. The process of creating photographs for me is about communing with the Divine. Through this dialogue, with camera in hand, I’ve had numerous opportunities to transfer onto film my intimate revelations or sublime moments of spiritual insight. Pure joy is also a major contributing factor in my desire to capture and share wonderful images.
These bodies of work: Reflections of Spirit, Healing Hands, Seascapes, First City, Botanicals, A Harlem Moment, The Still Life, Wyeth Revealed, Rooted in Faith, The African American Experience in St. Augustine, represent not just purley artistic expression, but are a visual diary of a myriad of experiences, feelings and memories and also hopes and dreams for the future. Sometimes what cannot be expressed in words can be expressed in imagery, song, and dance and or through other chosen vocations. I know firsthand the importance of finding a vehicle for creative expression and its effects—profound and innumerable.
I have been blessed to not only have found this vehicle of expression through creating various bodies of work, but also fortunate in being able to share them with an array of people around the world. I am excited about the possibilities and the promise of my work, hoping that it will continue to have a profound emotional and spiritual impact on myself and on the individuals who experience the images. My belief is that as I mature as a spiritual being and an artist, the work will also develop and to a greater degree, become a creative vehicle for transcending challenging times and for celebrating the beauty, grace and power of spirit.
