Artist Statement

My goal is to lead the eye through an image with the same effect as a storyteller weaves a tale. With these images, the photograph is a dream made tangible. It represents a physical extension of a memory for me. I want to go beyond just recording a time and place; I want to capture that “moment” and how it makes me feel, and share it with others.

This is a series of images that blurs the lines between photography, drawing, and painting. By embellishing an image through my own unique digital process for combining hand-painted artwork with my own photographs, these expressionistic images offer me a unique way of sharing my deep passion for nature, as well as bringing a visceral response from others.

And part of that process is shared with the viewer, since the picture isn’t complete until they are actively engaged by re-constructing the layers of colour in their own mind’s eye with each viewing.

However, if the art is successful, the process disappears and the sublime is revealed. It’s not enough to just be unique; it has to thrive. And it has to sing.
