Artist Statement 

As a former painter in oils and acrylics my photography reflects much more than capturing a moment of reality.  I create my photographs as if I were doing a painting creating painterly looks through various digital and physical techniques. I use the computer /Wacom  as if it were a paintbrush painting beautiful light and shadows conveying my emotional connection to the subject matter and then to the final expression on paper or canvas.    I believe photography is an art form that if successful evokes a positive emotional response in the viewer.  

Education

Studied photography at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design
