Statement:
In much of my work I’m dealing with subjects that are in a transitory state. The Evanescence series features images from composted organic materials. In this body of work I’m exploring the mechanics of transition through time, neglect and natural decomposition. I hope to establish images that can be beautiful and chaotic. Subjects that in their own specific way function as a part of a transient process. This ongoing series has been developed over the past two years and included are some of the newest selections.

Bio:
Having studied painting and photography at the Kansas City Art Institute, then, for a time owning and operating a small music shop and gallery, I’ve devoted much of life to making art and working in creative environments. For years I worked in painting and mixed media before transitioning from those disciplines to working exclusively in photography. I’ve been living and working in the Boston area since 2001.
