“Contrarian” photography, 12″ x 18″; other sizes


My focus is to see things in a new way. On a guardrail reflector, the theme of individuality is revealed. And yet, the contrarian is also part of a community. Intriguing how we desire to find the balance between standing out and fitting in.


“The Great Wave” photography and digital art, 12″ x 18″; other sizes


A piece of metal with overspray paint recalls a frequent dream of mine: a giant ocean wave waking me with overwhelming emotions. I must let those emotions spill out like the foam on the wave’s crest to calm my inner seas.

“As Above, So Below” photography and digital art, 12″ x 12″; other sizes


On a vintage truck, I spy Pegasus flying as easily to the heavens as moving on Earth. Ancient Greeks used myths to make sense of the world, and at the peak of cultural anxiety, this hero offers the profound wisdom of bravery to steady me.

“Elephant in the Room” photography, 12″ x 18″; other sizes


Two bullets pierce an old windshield. No one talks about it. And there it is. The elephant in the living room.

“Monkey Mind” photography, 12″ x 18″; 24″; other sizes


From branch to branch, the monkey jumps. But as chatter in my head, his negative thoughts are exhausting. This monkey was an amusing reminder to stay in control of the voice in my head.

“Aura” photography, 16″ x 9″; other sizes


I let my imagination fly with a bird on the wing. His luminous body radiates compassion and optimism.

“Red Fish” photography, 16″ x 20″; other sizes


My skiff on turquoise Caribbean waters slices forward, and a school of red fish appears. One was so big it nearly sank when I pulled it in. Yes, it is a tall tale. And conceived from a deteriorating sign.

“Collage” photography, 12″ x 18″; other sizes


What is a collage? A whole broken apart combined to create something new. An abandoned mirror leans against a building, sharing a collection of experiences with us.

“Celebration” photography, 24″ x 24″; other sizes


Can you find something worth high-fiving about today, big or small? I think these two on the side of a railcar came to life as I turned the corner. Perhaps they are celebrating that I took their picture.

Abstract images are my guides. They teach me to stay open and offer their messages of encouragement. I think of myself as their channel, and share what I see and feel, hoping they offer you ease. I invite you on this journey and welcome your company.
