I use my images as a vehicle to express ideas and to challenge the boundaries and
preconceptions of conventional photography. I am drawn to creating sets with an unusual
atmosphere and select figures and elements of nature that work within that space.
I want viewers to bring their own narrative to the image by drawing on their own
experiences.The images I create, inhabit the enigmatic space between reality and artifice that
is both compelling and metaphysical.
Light plays a vital role in my images and I use it to create and enhance the atmosphere of the
image and the people within that space.
