I SHOOT LIGHT. I DESIGN PHOTOS. My background is one of visual communication, design and photographic illustration. Experimentation, exploration and digital manipulation are at the forefront of my artistic development. I photograph, fragment and reconstruct light and space using mathematical mappings, algorithms, and distortion techniques. Symmetrical patterns that draw on my love of folk art and tribal design often emergeā€¦ or they may explode in asymmetrical chaos. My current work reflects a fascination with color as a function of light and the way the two interpenetrate. Contemporary architectural detail and the indigenous arts of the American Southwest, Latin America and North Africa influence my work. I enjoy captivating and challenging those who view my work, and invite collaboration with art consultants, designers, architects, advertising agencies, corporations and creative thinkers.
