I fell in love with this technique while I was in Italy photographing. It gave me the freedom of painting with the definition of film to make my visions come to life. For me, the Romantic comes from that wonderful moment of grace when love and imagination become one and the world appears as it is truly meant to be. My subjects appear as they see themselves in their fondest dreams. Flowers, trees, light houses, cottages, clouds, the moon and the sea all reveal their spirits in the images I capture. I was delighted when the White House chose my work using this impressionistic technique for Diplomatic gifts under President Clinton and President Bush.
