SF Open Studios
My photography draws from my background as a director and lighting designer for theatre. I create mixed scale scenarios, using the disorientation that results from these surreal scenes to draw attention to the beauty and power of everyday objects and daily interactions. I encourage people to see things that they might otherwise overlook. The fantasy of being tiny in a giant environment is universally compelling. Whether it is interpreted playfully, politically or spiritually, we have all had some experience of feeling miniscule compared to our surroundings or our challenges. I have exhibited this series since 1996, when I made my first nerve-racking public appearances on the walls of San Francisco coffee shops. Since 2000, I have been a full time artist, showing at top juried art festivals around the country, and around the world via the web, and I published my first book, “Overlooked Undertakings” in 2009. I feel passionately about creating community, and building bridges between people, so when my pictures spark a conversation, or evoke a shared smile I feel tremendous delight. My work has been published, collected and commissioned internationally. I live and work in my native San Francisco Bay Area.
