I have been a photographer all of my life catching the bug when I was in high school where I won second place in the school photography contest. I went on to pursue other work but always had photography as my art. I discovered abstract photography while attending photography school in 2012.
Abstract work allows me to put my creativity into the simple beauty of whatever is directly in front of me. I lose myself in the patterns, colors and textures. It all seems like another world to me and I escape into it for brief and exhilarating moments of time. I explain the process as a painting of the sensor and very little post processing is necessary.
I think it is more important than ever that we pause for extended periods of time to contemplate the beauty and interconnections in our lives which are often directly in front of us unnoticed. I truly want to put beauty into the world, front and center.
