About the Artist
I'm an artist who explores narrative storytelling through photographs and multimedia. My work usually consists of constructed
realities that cross over into implied fiction. Although my work embraces the post-modern world it is highly informed by
history, and research plays an important part in my work. My design background gives my work a graphic story-telling quality
with a cinematic feel. A desire to be creative on a daily basis fuels my curiosity about the human experience, and I document
experiences in sketchbooks as a way of remembering my life.
I refine my artistic vision by drawing on influences from music, art, and literature. I often utilize locations, props, styling and sets
in my work to create a constructed reality. As my interest in narrative work has deepened, I'm studying all aspects of storytelling
including screenwriting, character development, and the journey of the protagonist. As an avid reader of fiction I am particularly
drawn to mystery and espionage novels. I find it important to continually educate myself while building up new skill sets whether
they apply to my current endeavors or not. Such recent activities include building miniature sets in the form of scale models,
taking classes on book binding, and writing short stories that are character studies. I am always experimenting with new
concepts as an approach to solving old problems.
I enjoy collaborative assignments with clients that showcase my areas of expertise. This work affords me time to experiment
with my personal work at my studio. The journey I find myself on this year is a time of wide experimentation with my work.
I welcome conversations that might lead to the possibility of the right type of collaboration on future projects.
