The dome of Yemi Cami mosque in Istanbul is a dazzling array of color and pattern anchored only by the radiating dark chains suspending the chandeliers below. My goal was to capture the sense of being lifted into the timeless symmetry and elegant patterns.

 

Artist Statement:

"It's the ripple not the sea, it's the pebble not the stream, not the garden but the stone. These words by composer Stephen Sondheim serve as an inspiration and challenge for me to look closely, to find and capture the fragment that expresses the whole. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more deeply at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual places.
I have been influenced by my life in the theatre which, like photography, requires attention to detail and to make visible a world within a frame.
Following a career in professional theatre, I relocated to Richmond from Milwaukee Wisconsin. In Wisconsin my work appeared in juried exhibits including the Anderson Arts Center in Kenosha, WI and with the Coalition of Photographic Arts (CoPA) Midwest and the Museum of Wisconsin Arts in Milwaukee, WI. In Richmond my work has work been seen in solo exhibits at Artworks and the Main Richmond Public Library and in numerous juried exhibits in Artworks, Crossroads Art Center and the Glave Kocen gallery. I am a member of the Camera Club of Richmond and the Richmond Digital Camera Club.
