Piece description from the artist

By 1986 I moved to California to attend the Art Center College of Design. I began to develop a collage style of work that allowed me to merge my love of photography with my passion for painting. Blending paint and photographic compositions together on a single picture plane, I seek an integration of the two media types to create motion filled dreamscapes. Each piece transports the viewer to a dynamic textural environment. The physicality of paint coveys human emotions, contrasting the clarity and formality of photographic elements. Brush strokes and washes also serve to complete the dreamscapes adding transitional dream fragments and a sense of motion.
