“ Light tricks us in glances of particles and waves. In images and likenesses upon the water we are made.”
My eyes are constantly reminding me of all the many beauties in the world, photography allows me to share the beauty I see. We only ever see half of anything at any one time. That’s why I love mirror imaging. My art reflects what our eyes rarely see.
