I created this image in the dead of winter in anticipation of the coming spring. When I was going through some tulip photos from a previous springtime I spotted this one. The thing that attracted me to it was it's clean simplicity. The white of the flower contrasted nicely with the dark background while the red tulip in the background added a dash of color. The underlying concept in the series was to imagine viewing a colorful garden through a series of glass lenses that altered the view in some way. I felt that a circular motif would work well with the image and went with an oval with two circles that altered the magnification within the geometrically defined areas. The result is an example of a contemporary art deco image. I like to think of the style as neo deco, techno deco or digital deco because of the technology used in it's creation.

My imagery is built around a concept. After a central idea is established I explore possibilities within a set of creative and aesthetic parameters. From my perspective visual art is idea, expression, experience and process fused to create a perceptual synergy.

Nature has always played an important role in my art. In the late seventies and early eighties it was the focal point of several commissioned installations in Seattle and Chicago. During the next two decades or so landscape painting and drawing were my primary areas of interest. The work was exhibited in minor venues in Washington and Hawaii.

It was in 2005 when I bought my first computer and digital camera. The initial attraction was the speed that imagery could be produced. It was exciting to work at the speed of idea where the time span between concept and image was short. What followed has been a nonstop process of photography and editing. Presented here is an assortment of images that are a visual record of that activity.
