My educational background and passion has been and continues to be in the fine arts. As an artist who rarely has a shortage of creative ideas the question that I struggle with the most in subject matter is... how important is it? The wetlands project has the integrity and ecological conscience that nurtures our diligent plans for the planet’s survival. Morphology explores a photographic moment that otherwise may not have been captured. I am honoured to be involved.
