Connecting with viewers emotionally through visual imagery, I employ skillful techniques that merge traditional photography, design and composition, and a widely varied mixture of natural media, with the infinite possibilities afforded through modern digital imagery and digital painting. My work employs creative interactions of the old with the new in an exciting adventure of exploration and discovery.
Most of my pieces have their birth in my own photographic images. I always keep my originals...even at various stages of editing...for as I learn new techniques to experiment with, it is highly probable that certain pieces will be revisited, or even re-used, in a an altogether new composition.
My obsessions with subject matter is constantly fluctuating, though you will likely find a very common love of all things old, abandoned, forgotten; things that display varying nuances of texture and color; and all things outdoors, and of rural nature. Sometimes you may notice a stronger leaning toward photography...at others, more inclinations toward digital painting, fine art photography and mixed media works. Who knows what manner of bee may get in my bonnet next...I am artist. Watch me grow...
