I'm drawn to abstractions of real images; I like exploring different perspectives. I concentrate on natural light, long exposures with a tripod, and images that suggest, rather than duplicate, an object. Living and working on 47th Avenue in the outer Sunset district of San Francisco, I’m often drawn to Ocean Beach, where I began my ongoing project The Edge of the Ocean at the Edge of the Day. These images use long exposures to capture the shifting light of sunset on shallow surf at low tides. The motion of water and longer exposures create patterns and colors that are more complex than your eye can capture; the results are unpredictable and revealed only later as the files are downloaded. My images often combine a sharp foreground focus with the silky blur of movement. I use photoshop lightly. My art emphases subtle colors and unusual light, whether I am focusing on blue bottles with whimsical reflections, chasing feathers floating on shallow ponds, or the rolling ocean at night. I strive to capture the luminance of an object, images that suggest rather than starkly inform.
I share 47th Avenue Studio (the east and the west wing) with my photographer husband.
