    Artist Statement

    "I was caught by the light from the window that accented the beauty of the loft ladder and stairs in architect Bernard Maybeck’s masterpiece church in Berkeley. Maybeck designed the building, the fixtures, the garden, and the furniture. Every piece received his touch.

    "I find beauty and design in common objects and watch how light and shadow produce a scene that creates a mood or suggests a story. I mostly search for scenes that reflect rural man-made or urban industrial worlds. This image was taken in color and then transformed into black and white."
