Live in This Moment, Return to the Origin

Photography is the perfect vehicle to capture the moment. Photographs live in the moment. But as photography has evolved, the moment can be blurred through photo manipulation either digitally, layered negatives or by using photographs combined with other mediums.

I explore how photography merges and integrates with other mediums. I use my own photographs, next I work the image with film transfers, acrylic, texture, charcoal and other mediums. Acrylic glazing with oil based solvents produce organic patterns. I push my work for an emotional response to engage the viewer and provoke thought.
