Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I am a born traveler who loves to photograph and capture what I see and experience on my journeys.  A visual artist, rather than a traditional photographer, who uses photography as my canvas and digital editing as the main medium.  I strive to let my audience see the world as I see it through my lens; where every photo becomes a timeless capture of that specific scene.  Intrigued by the world, my love for photography, and passion for travel, have together allowed me to capture memorable moments of nature, people, places, art, culture and much more.  I see every photograph as an image that can come to life; and hope that each one gives my viewers the same bliss and enjoyment as it does for me.  I venture to expand my work by adding more destinations from around the world while developing new media techniques.

The last 15 years of travels have allowed me the opportunity to compile a diverse collection of images. I am constantly going back to my expanding library of images and creating new art as I find inspiration through what I see and encounter on a daily basis. Using my professional training in computer science, graphic design and visual arts, along with my training and experience in a variety of editing and printing techniques, allow me to transform each photograph into a unique piece of art. Each piece is unique as it has different digital editing techniques applied to it.  Once the digital art is complete, it gets its permanent face put on a different medium finish depending on its subject, theme or final environment of placement. I produce my work on a variety of medium finishes ranging from photo paper, canvas, acrylic glass, wood to forex, plaster, aluminum and my signature Illuminated Black Boxes.

We all hope to leave behind a legacy and a footprint that we are remembered by.  I consider my art and ability to interpret what I see and experience as a gift and will continue to use it as the tool to shape my legacy.  A gift I hope others will enjoy for years to come to see my life stories as I see them and intend for them to be remembered.
