An important story lives on as myth after all the witnesses have departed. My artistic goal is to bring to life a marvelous moment in time. The images sometimes explore the dark corners of off-kilter daydreams. Other times they simply seek to depict the beauty of nature.
After receiving my master’s degree from the University of Alabama I relocated to Chicago where I continued my education with classes at various institutions.
