About The Artist
I am a primarily self-taught photographer and began creating digital collages as a new means of expression. In creating collages, my goal is to create images that evoke a story of some kind that often moves far beyond the relatively literal boundaries of traditional photography.
I draw from a wide range of my photographic subjects such as landscapes, botanicals, and wildlife as well as urban environments and people. I follow an intuitive yet somewhat ordered process of layering or merging portions of photos until an image that speaks to me emerges. Most often this is more likely a random bit of serendipity than deliberate intent. Images often suggest a sense of time and place, or reflect a rich and ethereal interplay of color, shape or form. Images may provoke an indefinable question that does not readily yield answers without further study and reflection. Ultimately, my collages provide a vehicle to stimulate both my imagination and that of the viewer, leaving one free to interpret and create an individual sense of meaning and value.
I have exhibited widely and have earned recognition in local, regional, and national exhibitions. My works are also included in several corporate and private collections.
