I have always be drawn to images. Whether it was films, paintings, photography, I was bitten by the bug early on. I consider myself to be a student of many disciplines, and in 2005 I started to experiment with acrylic paints and mediums. Some of my paintings are almost like sculpture, they are tactile and are begging to be touched. In my other works I am striving for emotional intensity: happiness, sadness, anger, etcetera. I tend not to title the paintings, because ultimately the viewer is going to feel their own emotions and have their own thoughts when viewing the work.
2005 was also the year I fully turned to digital photography after a lifetime of film. It is freeing, but at the same time I miss the more hands on approach to shooting and printing film. The words "texture" and "contrast" really sum up what inspires me visually. Our world is made up of the textures and contrasts of the natural, the man-made, and the emotional.
