An Artist Statement

...........my first love is the tradition of black and white film photography........

In my artworks I allow imagery recorded on the film plane to become a platform from which I dive into personal subjective interpretations of a moment in time.

I understand that when one makes art with the intention of honest, unique self-expression, the result will be worthy of reflection no matter how basic or sophisticated the means of realization.....................
