“I am amazed at what can be done with long exposure and light sources. The techniques are endless.”

“Considering painting with light is the art of making space and time your canvas and using light as your medium, a lot of potential lies in this basic definition.”

“The world is your canvas. Anything you can imagine can be painted a million different ways, time and space take on new meaning. Light is the brush and the environment is the canvas.”
