Statement:

Photography is not just a medium to record images of things the way they are, it is also an artistic medium to produce images that interpret reality into a personal point of view. Photography is indeed, a medium using the eye of the beholder, that is then made into a physical embodiment for everyone to view.

It takes at least two people to engage in the process of making art. The person who makes it, and the person who views it. In all of my photographic work, whatever the subject matter, I attempt to evoke an emotional response from the viewer to more fully engage them in this experience. 

 

Bio:

After being educated as an art teacher, I moved to Los Angeles and became involved in film and television. I worked in the Art Department as a Set Decorator, over 30 years in this capacity, garnering an Emmy Nomination in 2001. I retired in 2011 and now pursue photography full time. My subject matter is varied, I pursue what interests me at the moment, but all of my work reflects my extensive background in the artifice of the entertainment industry, telling a story non verbally, with the actors still off stage. I prefer to use mannequins and dolls as stand ins.
