As a Digital Artist, my camera becomes my instant sketchbook, recording what is instinctive to me. Capturing a spontaneous moment in time or maybe a surprising right angle filled with turquoise color or a gesture of woman, but my senses take over and my intuition rules. I use my camera as an instrument of visual expression. It is the understanding of my photographs, as far as I am concerned, the sensitivity, the geometrical shapes, the psychological levels, the conscious color that gives meaning to my work.
