Thank you for seeking out and being involved in my blog, my art, my life. Photography is a driving force in my life. What I love most about it, is our ability to transform our dreams and nightmares into surreal moments that reach, touch and affect the world around us. A lasting idea like a tangible piece of poetry. And…. I am a sucker for poetry. Which is why I have a blog. I can not contain my need to combine words and imagery together. I have been shooting touching, obsessing about photography since i was 9 years old. I love emotional art, I love expression, i love individuality. I love strength, courage and evolution. These things are important to me. I am bare bones without this extension of my soul, this ability to create and give myself to the world around me. What I do is not impossible for anyone to do, it is simply an obsessive desire to communicate. Some of us communicate with song, with love, with words, I have chosen to share imagery. It is a terrific tragedy to love something so much, so maddening and undefinable. It is as if bleeding becomes a religion. Chords we hear and share like children to the world. This is what I have to offer the world, in blood types and fire storms. Believe in what you love, give it all of you and watch it bloom. Again, Thank you.
I am currently working on gallery showings, creating a book, traveling, sharing art and affecting the world around me.
