Black & white photography will always be a favorite of mine for its stark qualities, but layering and blending images always brings out interesting and many times unexpected results. My most enjoyable journeys start with a single element and no clear path. The highlight always comes when I stop adding, editing or dripping paint and think to myself, "wow, how did I get there?!”
My images come from landscapes, architecture and cultures to birds and old rusted cars. They also come from photos of organic and personally created textures. I use a Nikon 7100, Adobe Photoshop and a host of mixed media, from inks and graphite to acrylics and oils. Some images stand alone from the start, others are developed through blending two to dozens of images together.
