Resume

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida.
Lived and worked in Atlanta, Georgia for 20 years.
Current home the South

Graduated from the University of South Florida in 1993. Major in Art History.

I have been in exhibits around the south for over twenty years. My art is a part of corporate collections as well as many private collections across the US. I have exhibit at the Art and Light Gallery in Greenville, SC.

History

At 21, on the verge of graduating from college and passionate about the history of art, specifically contemporary art, I was offered an opportunity to study in Paris. The 'catch' was that I had to do photographic studies while living in 'The City of Light.' With little knowledge of the photographic process or its relatively young history, I decided to dive right in and learn all I could about this art form before the summer trip began.

For hours I poured over photography books by classic artists such as Nadar, Alfred Steiglitz, and Cameron, eventually progressing to the modern masters like Witkin, Avedon, and Sally Mann. In the midst of this self-study, I came across Doug and Mike Starn, whose work I found immediately inspiring. The Starn's art grabbed me; it spoke to me as an artist. The torn photos and random hands-on feel of their work juxtaposed everything else I had seen represented in photo history. Their work to me became almost painterly and I felt inspired by the way they pushed the medium in scale and display. Their work changed my perception of photography, enabling me to use the art form as a medium for my individual interpretations. With the Starn's work I had inspiration to do photographic work, but what would be my subject matter? While studying in Paris I found my major focus of subject in the vast and beautiful cemeteries. The arcane, haunting beauty of these solemn places was overwhelming and inspiring, initiating my 10-year documentation of cemeteries around the world.

I have now moved onto shooting mostly southern rural things and places. Places that time has forgotten or has decayed. Many images are inspired by personal moments growing up in the South. My new work is a fictional scrapbook combining found text with my photographs. These pieces become a one of a kind testament to forgotten places, time and hopefully a memory. The combining of text to create a fictional narrative that may spawn memoires for the viewer.

Technique

I shoot all time a variety of subject matter mostly indicative to a southern feel. Then I do selects and editing before sending for printing. The prints are then sorted and laid out
with a variety of found materials till ready to be combined. My photographic collages are C Prints which are torn apart to expose fibrous layers. The prints are then stained in a
variety of substances from tea, coffee, dirt, and charcoal. They are then scraped, sanded, and painted before a final coat of wax is applied. As of late I also incorporate old books,
found text, old photographs and tin types along with the treatment & encaustic.
