More than anything else I would consider myself a storyteller. I tell my stories through cinematically staged narrative-driven images.
Character. Environment. Action. Light.
These are the four ingredients that make up my work. A character can be anyone. The character is visually developed through clothes, makeup and hair. I am usually drawn to the underdog and the misfit.
I appreciate a pretty face but in a world full of pretty faces I will always take unique substance over
standard beauty. Once I have the character I put them in an environment that compliments their history
and enriches the narrative. I then give my characters life defining actions. Maybe it’s an action that is very straight forward or maybe it’s something out of frame that is less obvious. Each approach is different, but I most enjoy creating mystery and leaving space for the viewer’s imagination. The last thing to do is light the scene and give the story depth, space and ultimately life. I’ve created the pieces but I let the viewer put
the puzzle together.
Taking something that has only previously been envisioned in your mind and now seeing it materialized before you in physical form is an extraordinary pleasure. Sharing that vision with the world is the art of art for me.
