“My art is heavily influenced by my career as a graphic designer. I enjoy exploring a variety of aesthetics and photographic mediums to develop looks that best suit my subject matter. Color and composition are the elements I employ to help express an idea or mood. Conceptually my work revolves around the protagonist of man and the struggles, both mental & physical, encountered while trying to integrate with the world. From the manufactured cityscapes of “Inconcrete” to larger, global issues in “Atomic Overlook”, the internal landscape of the mind with “In Dark Light” or the surreal, environmental tragedy documented in “Seaside” I am always looking to tell the tale of man versus world and how we inhabit, affect and are effected by this shared reality.”
