I really like working with art media, taking photos, mixing it up occasionally too, talking ideas, sharing info, giving and getting feedback. When I grow up I wanna do this ALL the time.

About my latest work:
I am a photographer of opportunity—wherever I am I find something to photograph whether I am inside my home, on a walk in the neighborhood or in town, or on a trip away from home. The subjects of my photographs might seem mundane or ordinary. But once combined, with key visual elements intertwined, they have power to evoke deep responses in the viewer. This power, generated through relationship, fascinates me.
Generally I review my photos many times. While reviewing, certain images will come forward as being more memorable. My next step is to experiment with selected images in Photoshop, layering, creating transparency and altering colors as I go. Any alterations that I apply happen so fluidly that I can “play” with an image and through play come to awareness about an image’s significance. While I am working the images this way I am discovering that some combinations seem more potent than others. They give hints of significance beyond the everyday.
