Artist statement: 
  
"Before my focus through a camera lens became a consuming interest, my artistic life was with hammer, chisel, rasp and stone, trying to meet the challenge of sculpting animals. By osmosis, one‘s eyes and creative intuition begin to be acutely aware of line, shadow, and dimension. These qualities washed onto and into my vision of presenting African wildlife subjects as I began to experiment by assembling more than one image in a given picture. I often think of my photographs as "small worlds," brief stories that took place in front of me, events often seen quickly and with great intensity. I want the viewer to step out from himself for a moment, accept the invitation to visit behind the frame for not everything initially is seen at once in these 'captured events."
 
"The trees and skies, heat, dust and the animals all say "this is Africa" whether one has been there or not. I attempt to bring forward a mood, form a bit of a timeless dream by using sepia-brown tones, to perhaps jog a memory, of things seen in the beginning in the exploration of a magnificent continent. My images will hopefully underscore the vital importance of preserving Africa‘s species and their environments that are now threatened by exploding populations and a politically unstable world."
