Artist’s Statement

There is something special about the light on an Island. Water, sky and light have a unique interplay that doesn’t occur anywhere else. I love trekking out to a beach as evening approaches to capture a magical sunset or rising early in the morning to witness yet another glowing sunrise. The reflections of light at these times are both fleeting and unique. My photographs attempt to capture these moments before they would otherwise disappear. I hope they bring you as much joy in viewing them as I experienced when I created them.

Proceeds from art sales are split between the artist and MV Playhouse.
