My creative force finds its home in fine art photography and painting. The images I create speak to the viewer by offering glimpses into our shared human condition, honoring both the darkness and the light.
Each image begins as something hidden that longs to escape, to be known. I take risks with my art.
The images may require you to step out of line perhaps even break with polite society, to view a deeper meaning of the desires that both plague and please. It is this artist’s hope that my work captures what is needed most and serves the viewer well.
My work is my gift and it is what I was meant to do.
May these images honor your journey –
