My aim in this work is to thread the passion of my painting with the macroscopic qualities of my photos. Taking inanimate objects and blending both mediums creates works of wonder letting viewers come up with their own ideas of meaning.
I have recently been working at a macro level discovering the extraordinary in the ordinary and believe everything we see and take for granted often has more fascination & intrigue than its true size , shape and form.
Abstract and realism blends are my aim and I have always felt energy from cultural influences. My work is very personal, has tremendous passion behind it and often with multiple painting upon painting adding layers of theory and meaning.
After a 25 year hiatus, painting has forced its way back into my life. Painting, writing, and photography at a very young age were lifelines to expressing my core. One or the other would either elevate me or save me, even in the darkest of times. Most recently my Master's degree re-introduced me to digital photography having let go of it in the 90's. And like a perfect storm I am exploring all of these mediums , and in many cases blending, mixing and morphing them. Macroscopic imagery does more than inspire me as people see different things in everything. This is why I do this, it is my pulse, my passion, and my drive. To capture the marvel, see its beauty, enhance and influence it; then resonate in awe of the simple things, the things we overlook.
