All of my work is one of a kind and emerges from my original photographs, taken close to home or during my travels around the world. The mix media process I use takes the photograph printed on paper as a basis over which I use collage assembly on canvas or wood as a means to bring to the fore one aspect: The feeling I had when I took it. The special detail that made me focus on the object. The beauty beneath. And most importantly the shapes and lines within each other that created that stoppable moment for me. Once the collage is complete I paint in and over objects to either enhance the subject of my focus or subdue and manipulate other surrounding images. It takes getting really close to my work to see all the details that go into creating one piece.
