Artist Statement – I am a Wheaton Franciscan engaged in Spiritual Direction and retreat work. For me photography is a joy and delight. In photography I am engaged in the colors and subtle tones of the energetic field caught by my eye and the lens of the camera. A natural landscape provides an opportunity to work with the many hues it provides, always displaying new wonders. It becomes a portal into the world of Spirit as it both creates things of beauty and allows for disintegration in our midst. Reality seen with Spirit’s eye is a work of art.
The key to my work is to watch for powerful settings that make a statement or touch the heart. I watch for color, texture and contrast. When all three catch my eye and my heart I have a photo worth shooting.
