This body of work is made as a meditation on the spirit of things that I encounter or seek out in my day to day life. The objects that I find whether in nature or on the street not only bring me inspiration, But I find that when paired in different ways, they become poetic vignettes. I love the discarded and sometimes decaying elements of things past their prime, and also the associations that form when objects are grouped together. The Portraits have emerged as a natural extension of this process.
I see these images as a bridge between my conscious world and symbols from my unconscious mind. There is always some interesting interplay and an element of surprise.
