I am a photographic artist living in Wyndmoor Pennsylvania. I fell in love with the art of photography while attending photography courses at Kutztown University and have been creating artwork ever since then. I started out using silver gelatin black and white film and color negative and reversal film in 35mm format to 4×5 format. I had a great interest in controlling the films to create my previsualized concept and artwork by using different types of developers like Barry Thornton’s pyrochatecol’s, DiXactol and Exactol among other types of developing agents. I believe that traditional film photography is something very extraordinary. It renders prints of unmatched beauty and quality. That being said, I like many have also found modern digital photography to produce equally beautiful prints.
Currently I work primarily with digital photography to execute my photographic concepts. I try to use the digital medium to take advantage of its increased range of tones and ability to be manipulated to express my conceptual ideas. I have most recently begun to combine digital painting with my photography to truthfully conceptualize the visualized artwork.
My latest work attempts to express the concept of stacking many single textures and imagery found in nature to create something new and unseen. With my latest work I hope to challenge the viewers visual perception and subconscious mind by creating something the viewer would like to see clearly but cannot quite construct.
I am concerned with the environmental challenges that are facing the human race and our planet moving forward. I feel as though changes in our environment are still happening at a rate that many people still have trouble processing the true inevitable danger. My recent work attempts to draw a parallel between the artworks blurred nature and people’s unclear perception of our changing environment.
