“I want to wake and see the world each day with fresh eyes.”
I am an abstract contemporary artist who is inspired by the urban environment. My imagery explores the intersections of photographic realism and abstract expressionism. These divergent worlds intertwine through my re-organization of space, the interactions of color and a convergence of reality and imagination.
I've always been driven by form and design as if each piece created were a puzzle to be put together differently. Today’s technology allows me to deconstruct a single image into a myriad of possibilities. I use digital tools in either an ordered or random fashion. It depends on where my mind's eye might go, walking the pallet knifes edge between photography and painting.
Throughout my career my guiding premise, from Minor White, has always been, “Photograph something not for what it is but for what it can become”.
