As you will see, she describes her work perfectly: “Throughout my career as a professional photographer, I have consistently made images that deal with light and shadow, abstraction, mystery, and illusion. Using a variety of camera angles to affect perception and plane, I create complex, abstract spatial arrangements from architecture, objects, fabric, and paper. … I always begin by photographing existing, real objects or architecture. My angle of approach, my lighting of the subject, and my knowledge of composition all contribute to the transformation of these real spaces, into abstractions of a philosophical dimension. … In my more recent explorations, the elements are enhanced by color, with intense dark blacks and white light emerging from deeper spaces beyond. There is a more powerful psychological aspect to these newer works, adding sensuality, tension, and mystery. The finished exhibition prints have a finely wrought delicacy.”
