ARTIST STATEMENT

"Torn Up" 36"X36" pigment ink on paper

My work reflects my great passion for dance and the music it depends on. Figures, body parts and trails of movement are pictured in almost all of my work. Dance allows us to see music and, I believe, my artwork is another way to see it.

I try to create images that have never-been-seen-before by pushing photography to a new realm. Discovering a unique filter in thick architectural glass block happened by accident. This led to my series of fantasy works. I love distorting reality. I think distortion, shadowing or reflection from a subject is often more interesting than the subject itself.
