My eclectic tastes result in work that is broad in range, style and subject matter. When actively engaged in photography, I look for both the manifest and hidden beauty that is inherent in the space which I happen to inhabit at the time. I especially enjoy discovering abstractions while in a state of mindfulness with my environment. When creating digital abstract images I select photos using one or both of two criteria: their inherent aesthetic composition and/or their potential for revealing the underlying essence or structure of their subject. Those photos are then reinterpreted using image-editing software. Often the result of this process is an image that bears little or no resemblance to the photographic medium that initially created it. I view this process of abstraction as something akin to extraction because it involves taking what is found in the real world and extracting its basic elements of shape, color, line and texture.
