Artist Statement  |  Bio  |  Resume

Art invites the viewer into the head and heart of the artist. It is a challenge to see differently. Photography's unique role within the arts is its ability to show what IS at the same time as it manipulates the point of view to manifest the vision of the artist.

I have spent my life noticing things about the built world. I notice when corners aren’t joined precisely; I notice patterns both designed and emergent; I notice color and form and scale. Each of my series captures a particular element of my noticing: e.g. decay or pattern or color.

The camera is my tool of choice. By manipulating this tool in both traditional and non-traditional ways, I whittle my subjects down to their core. Often this means losing the context of location, environment, and even the subject itself. What I hope to gain is a record of that thing that caught my interest - that thing that other people don't see.
