I enjoy seeking out photographic subjects with an eye toward their successful
translation into an abstract work of art.
My recent designs combine my interest in photography, digital photography
and multimedia. In my current series, I
use numerous travels as inspiration and photographs taken in Dakar Senegal, the
Gambia, West Africa and Granville Island, British Columbia.
Before my interest in photography, I have had a lifelong interest in painting.
Today, I especially love creating digital images using free-form techniques,
rendering light and color, editing and manipulating them with computer
technology. I create interesting
digital effects on photographic subjects, texturing or blurring to illustrate
movement, an added dynamic to the image.
It is exciting to distort a basic image in a variety of ways producing an
abstract work of art.
My aim is to depict enough realism in the
abstract work to have universal appeal.
While I still enjoy the traditional
methods of painting from time to time, my current style of work focuses on
digitalized development, production standards and techniques-- transferring
photographic images onto a computer edit, customize and print.
