PHOTOGRAPHY | Moving beyond the literal representation, I use the camera to interpret the world – a place, a feeling, or an experience. I hope the resulting images challenge the viewer to look again at what passes in front of them, transcending the surface to reach the essence.
MIXED MEDIA| As a photographer with a love of painting, I found a natural progression by blending my two interests to create mixed media works. The process starts with mounting photographs on birch panel. Next, I cover the images with layers of encaustic wax and paint using pigmented oil sticks and ink. The Shot From the Highline series is something that I wanted to create as I live next to the Highline path and find it an amazing work of art.I found a balance between the landscapes and the cityscapes to create these story boards.
