An artist, a photographer, evolving on the fly...
Passionate about the art and the craft of photography I was hooked when I saw my first image in print on a large format printer. It was the beginning of a journey learning to use photographic images as part of an artistic expression. As an image based artist I work with compositions and composited images (using more than one image to make a piece of art) and hand print the image onto metals, wood, acrylic and ceramic to create individual works of art. Working in physical layers allows the viewer to attempt to separate the images as they walk around a piece and then put it all together from the front. I prefer images in the abstract because of the random nature of life. In the lack of perfect control of the transferring of images to other surfaces, I embrace the randomness of life and therefore, the randomness of the art and the artistic endeavor.
I still visit the documentary side of my curious nature of seeing the world through the eyes of another human being (though, if an animal grabbed my camera I might have to rethink that statement). Invited to work with students on a project in India through the integrative medicine program at Metro State College, or with locals to interview and photograph populations that are part of the State of Colorado. Storytelling and listening to stories are part of our DNA and I continue working to preserve these oral traditions.
