The beauty is in the detail ...

Artist Statement

Thirty years of photography have shown me that the closer you look at nature, a colorful world of abstract design and patterns captures our fascination. Whether the subject be a sea shell, a rock, leaf, fruit or feather - magical images appear even in the most mundane object.

Using new digital scanning and printing techniques, I have been able to capture and magnify these images of nature with more detail than conventional photography.
