Artist's Statement: 

            A camera is a great tool for discovering joy in its many forms and sharing that joy with others. I don’t care much for the technical side of photography, but I love capturing what my heart sees. Some of the very best writers I know have said they write, because they can’t not write. I feel that way about taking pictures. The “Like Peas in a Pod” series was shot using the Hipstamatic photo application on my iPhone. I am grateful to photographers Malcolm J. Wilson and Jennifer Molley Wilson for teaching me how to see in a new way.
