My photographic works are created primarily from an intuitive starting point, transforming the subject through light. With the use of a lens I start the process of image making, creating abstract forms that emphasize line and shadows. Through the printmaking process I continue to manipulate the image with various techniques such as hand applied light sensitive emulsions, encaustic and graphite. Within the imagery I compose, I strive to create depth, giving the viewer the opportunity to look within, pause and contemplate at the subtleties of what lies beneath.
