“Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there” – Miles Davis
“One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect. Perfection simply doesn’t exist…Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist” – Stephen Hawking
Artistic expression has always been a fundamental part of my life. As a self-taught photographer, I love the freedom the camera affords me to create images as seen through my world view. I shoot what captures my imagination. I’m fascinated by the manipulation of light and movement to create a deconstructed image. That fascination speaks to my observations that there’s always more than meets the eye. Take a look deeper, behind, beside, around, and beyond. I invite you to explore the layers of these images. No photography apps are used to enhance my images.
I consider my relationships the best inspiration for my art…relationships with my family and friends, my community, my planet. And a sense of humor.
My work has been exhibited at the Showcase Gallery in South Coast Plaza Village located in Santa Ana, CA, AvantGarden the Art Gallery located in the Santora Building in Santa Ana, CA, and through various exhibits with The Santa Ana Community Artist/a Coalition, Santa Ana, CA.
I live in Newport Beach, CA.
