My approach to visual art is one of journey. From when I first started in a wet darkroom to the present, with photography, film, drawing and painting I have become more expressive with scale. Much of my work involves timelessness, eternity. I have become most known perhaps for my ethereal Black / White desert landscape works. They have set the stage for a new evolution in my artistic thinking.

 

I have always been an explorer. Now my explorations are taking me into the worlds of Augmented Reality and expressing photography with 3 dimensional printing. With new tools that are emerging in the digital space, I think it may be the most exciting time in history to be an artist, where all is possible.
