Artist Statement

I am a visual story-teller. From my university background in creative writing to my years of experience as a photojournalist, I have learned the potentiality of the image to create a narrative more powerful than can be quantified in words. Through double-exposure and manipulation, I raise the literal image to the symbolic.
