“For me, art is a rich and passionate love affair, an obsession.
It can consume and frustrate, soothe and console.
A voice from somewhere deep inside, it is the place where private thought and intense emotion are allowed free reign, and imagination knows no boundaries.” - Patrice Herbst

It is a fortunate life that is spent witnessing and recording the world as one sees it, whether by photo, paint or written word.  I have studied the elegance of form and the magic luminescence of light, receding, advancing, reflecting, slivers of light.... the mystery of shadows, the drama of chiaroscuro and the tragic beauty of Kintsugi.  With a passionate love for art, and a seemingly restless and sometimes rebellious spirit, I present my humble observations for you to peruse.  I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have loved creating each piece of artwork, and capturing every photograph.
