Like words used to build a story, sensory attractions build my experience. I wait, listen, trust, pause, listen, leap, stop, and begin again to collect, compose, wonder, experience.

Each mosaic-like piece within the Restoration series was photographed during one of New England's four seasons.The many hours spent outside in nature form the matrix on which I build. The process of creating each work elicited a restorative response within me. Colors, smells, sounds, personality of subject and season, even the warm August breeze, touched me—as I worked in the dead of winter compiling separate elements into a whole.
