With this, my current series, I’m interested in capturing a moment. Giving the viewer a look into the world of a woman who is very much in her own space. It’s simply about a moment between the future and the past.
These images are shot through burlap to achieve a painterly, semi-impressionistic quality that renders the subject anonymous though still relate-able. This fabric panel shifts the focus from her identity to her state of mind. It gives a sense that, rather than looking at the image, we're looking into the image.
Tissage is printed in editions of only 10 prints per image except "Special Edition" images which may be fewer than 10.

Anais Nin once observed that one of the differences between men and women is that women leave one with a resonance or essence. A wisp of something left in their absence. Like the last note of a song hanging in the air.
With this series of photographic images I'm rendering the figures a part of that intoxicating wisp.
In virtually all of the figurative work I do my primary motivation is to portray women as strong, confident and inspiring.
Often, in discussing my work I've referred to the ’fluidity of the female form‘ rivaling any other beauty found in nature.
This series of photographic images takes that phrase as its inspiration.
THE ILLUSIONS OF PSYCHE
In this series of digital mixed media images the female figures represent the Greek Goddess Psyche.
Her form is born from an ink blot much like those Rorschach was famous for. Her body becomes a part of the abstract allowing the viewer to determine what exactly it is that they "see" when looking at the amalgamation.
Recently I've created some images that aren't a part of any of my main series.
The first five images displayed here I generally refer to as the "Strange Dreams & Metaphors" series. They are a collection of random concepts that I produce so as to release them from the confines of my mind.
They are, in order, titled:
The image that follows them is titled Raison d’être
PAINTINGS & MIXED MEDIA
Although the bulk of my work is photographic, my foundation as an artist began with drawing and painting. I often go back to my roots for a more tactile process to create work.
The two paintings here of the hands are:
“COMPASSION” 4’ x 8’ Acrylic on canvas.
“ACCEPTANCE” 4’ x 8’ Acrylic on canvas.
The other two pieces are mixed much smaller media pieces. In each the nest and it’s contents are real. The rest of each piece is painted (including the snake).
