I find beauty in nature and especially flowers. This leads to a desire for realism in my pictures, but I try to create abstract or surreal visual images even with tack sharp photographs. I especially like macro photography which has led to the use of photo stacking. My ideal is to create images that are visually stunning, that immediately draws the eye and that can be enjoyed simply from an interaction of shapes and colors. This sometimes happens through simple elegance, but I also strive for a depth and complexity that allows the viewer to linger on details.
