Lives and works in Wayne, Pennsylvania
With a formal background in photography and a passion for paint, I am inspired by the play between these two mediums. My collage work explores the relationship between both processes as I traverse the space that exists in between things, playing in the area where this crossover takes place. Through my creative process, I attempt to blur the boundaries where photography and paint collide; softening the edges between light and dark, pattern and field, magic and reality. I work intuitively and keep my focus on aesthetic balance as I allow my subconscious to express itself in whatever way is needed.
