 Artist statement
The fine art photography that I am currently creating is focused on satire, psychological expression and situations that people find themselves. In my most recent series: Motel Stories, Kids and Their Toys, and The Fuck Series, I focus on the ideas of irony and absurdity, and social expression in life and art. My main interest is shooting people and connecting them to life stories through journalistic style fine art photography.  I hope to branch out further in art with a storytelling process and new genres utilizing mixed media, collage, and video art — blending them all together with photography.
