Herein I have selected some of my favorite images that I believe will give you insight into who I am.
Essentially, because I am an ex-city-dweller gone feral much of my work is focused on my personal relationship with the remote, uninhabited landscape. I approach each image as a kind of ceremonial “totem” as I pay homage to the natural world I love so much. Abandoned structures slowly being taken back by nature add the dystopian element I find important to conveying a “spirit of place” in many of the settings presented.
So too, I am obsessed with mini-narratives through visual portraiture. These consist of 2 to 3 images that tell a story, and my most recent series titled, “Once Upon A Sofa” is included here. I am especially excited about these images as I believe the sofa holds a place of high esteem in most homes and it is the perfect backdrop to each story.
