One of the essential aspects of my art is transforming an image by coaxing it out of it's former identity and giving it a new one. The human figure, worn surfaces, plant material and graffiti all interest my photographer's eye. Using free association, I create shapes and structure which provide the scaffolding over which I build a new image rich in both texture and color. The combination of my original photography and art offers me a broad range of self expression. My work is about perception, improvisation, losing control, and traveling into the unknown.
