Bio:

The simple act of being given a quality camera changed the way I looked at and understood the world around me. It took me beyond a creative “safe zone” and made me fall in love with something I never paid too much attention to—graffiti and street art. Drawn in by its subversive nature, raw energy, bold lines and wild colors, crumbling walls, back alleys and tunnels call to me. They are my visual playground and feed an urge to embrace something so entirely contradictory to myself. I’ve traveled far and wide to capture small vignettes of graffiti all over the world—seeking out the most interesting details of walls, tunnels or decaying buildings. I zero-in on certain elements, characteristics of color, line and patina. These micro photographs are like found objects that I carefully dissect and repurpose into entirely new abstract collages where my viewers are drawn into a reimagined urban landscape. The essence of the original graffiti detail is still there, but it is unrecognizable from its original state. My studio practice begins with sorting through these tiny detailed images by trip and by city, compiling visual libraries. Creating my own color swatches in a variety of mediums, I merge painterly elements with photographic details giving my work a hand-made quality. I play with a variety of surfaces, wood, metal, paper and fabric. Reinterpreting graffiti and street art is my expression of what I experience in the act of capturing an ever evolving scene. Immersing myself in these visually chaotic, brilliant and raw environments continues to transform me creatively. I hope my art transforms the viewer as it has transformed me.
