Statement

My artworks fall somewhere between photography and painting.  Technically they are straight photographs not manipulated or layered, but one image plainly shown.  Emotionally they are all about painting.  I search out surface, shadow, light, color and bring them together onto a canvas.

Color is crucial to me.  I believe in the power of color and how it affects mood.  I want people to walk into a room of my photographs and feel surrounded by the color and the warmth that emanates from them.  In addition, I want people to have the bold composition of color, shadow, lights and blacks challenge them to find their footing within the picture.
