The new direction of these images marks a radical departure from my previous work that documented individuals in their particular environment. The absence of human imagery in this body of work was conscious. Disillusioned with the current self-absorbed nature of our political and financial institutions, I stepped away into the beauty of a serene environment to breathe. I stripped away the human figure to get to the core of my emotions. By clearing the noise and clutter with one single thought I have found my voice.
