My continued concentration with alternative photographic processes has taken on a mixed-media approach. When altering the surface of a photographic print I use materials such as oil, graphite, encaustic and found-materials for embedding.
These techniques allow me to build layers, adding depth to the photographic imagery. Hand work is vital to the print-making process.
Rediscovered through the lens of my camera, the subject is often transformed, recreated, with the intention to give the viewer a desire to pause and look closer.
Light is the element of design that catches my eye when looking at subjects. Light allows me to enhance the subject and create a point of interest. Light allows the magic to happen when processing with photographic chemistry.
