About Photographer

Artist’s Statement When I see light illuminating a building or a stairway, sneaking in from the side, articulating the texture of a wall or highlighting a detail, I want to reach out and touch it. By capturing the movement of light and making it tangible, I seek to preserve the instant of visual delight. I am pulled in by the imprint of the human species, the interaction of the buildings around us with nature, and the artistic process – these things attract me. Others may capture the untouched landscape….my eye is drawn to the built environment, expressed in color, pattern, or often, in the defining clarity of black and white. BIO Born in White Plains, New York, I received a Bachelor of Science in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University, and reside in Maplewood, New Jersey.
