The inspiration for the Les Copines Series was Renoir and the Impressionists. My defining moment came while traveling through the Costa Brava coastal towns of Spain, there I began experimenting using my camera as a painter uses a paintbrush. Seeing the world through painterly eyes, I began to deeply explore the relationship between the familiar and the abstraction. My goal is for the viewer to see the world in the context of a larger reality and what appears to be clear and in focus is only our perception.
