Artist Statement

I like to take pictures of people and l like for them to tell a story. It could be a true story or a made up one. I love to take portraits of individuals that are playful, fairytale-ish and have an element of magic in them. Photographs which unmask some truth about a person are my favorite.

Most recently, I have been making photographic mini-dramas where my characters are confronted with choices they must make, either to gain greater freedom and self-actualization or, things might get ugly, and they might die (yikes!).

Technically, I blend antique and alternative process photography with the digital world. I tend to work with older processes, infrared and medium format film and conventional darkroom toning while many times converting these images to digital images in order to edit and process them on various surfaces (tiles, canvas, linen, etc).
