Artist Statement:
In the 30+ years I have lived in the Upper Valley, I've grown to love its ever-changing landscape and native flora and fauna. I started taking photographs about 5 years ago and haven't stopped since! I want to share with you, in this show, those special moments when the fox suddenly appears, the loon calls, the little red eft emerges and the birds sing, or are silent.
My photography is an evolving art-some of my prints are straight from the camera, and some are what I call "photo-paintings". My background as a watercolorist has led me to experiment with digitally "painting" my photographs.

The results are unique – neither strictly photo nor brush and paint. All the prints in this show were made with the finest archival inks and papers for maximum longevity. Some are limited editions. The show also includes some of my watercolors. Enjoy!
