My work is a visual expression of my inner life, an emotional archeology often revealing itself in hidden and uncovered layers across a variety of mediums. As a highly visual person with a long career in photography and photojournalism, I process the world around me through the image.
My work focuses on the natural world with an eye toward the abstract and an organic palette with an emphasis on materials such as rusted metals, plants, handmade papers, books, and other found objects. My work often features a throughline of hidden meanings - nothing is as it seems. I rely deeply on my artistic process to reveal what each piece wants to say and allow my viewers to interpret my work freely.
