My art reflects an interplay between nature, culture and spirituality and aspires to demonstrate the interconnectedness between these themes. I like to blur the boundaries between representation and abstraction and often find that one derives from the other. My focus is on whatever I happen to be exploring in the world around me at any given time, allowing images to resonate in my mind’s eye.
Although photography is at the core of my work, I have always had an affinity for mixed media. My expanded toolbox includes a Nikon, a MacBook, an iPad, an iPhone, Photoshop, a Wacom tablet, a sketchbook, various graphite utensils, markers and pastels. Inspiration generally finds me while I’m not actively pursuing it. It can come through music, natural and cultural environments, meditation, other artists’ work, moments in film, passages in literature.
I seek audiences of all ages and persuasions who are drawn to visual expression, particularly those looking for new voices in the art world. A sense of enjoyment arises from establishing dialogs with other artists and art enthusiasts.
