    Artist Statement

    "These portraits of trees are photomontages, and by virtue of the process used to create them, can be considered 'inverse panoramas.' I have at times considered these images as from a divine perspective. It is as if one crosses through a gate into another realm, where time and space are collapsed. From the perspective of the tree, they represent a passage of events.

    "When I select and emphasize the individual tree, my intention is to open a gate and allow the viewer to listen and explore; and perhaps relate to the central figure in ways not before understood or realized. Similar to us in its branching, arterial-like symmetry, is there another way to appreciate a tree?

    "I am attracted to the tree by its form, size and setting. Often, when I spot a candidate to photograph, I debate in my mind if I want to wade through the wet grass or simply continue home. It is the potential for that next mysterious print that drives my ambition to collect more images. Another tree, another window into creation."
