I am a digital artist who lives in the Tampa Bay area of Florida within the city of New Port Richey.  

About six years ago I began taking lots of photographs.   I also started reading many  photography books, studied the works of many great artists and took many online courses.  In addition,  I  made a goal to learn Photoshop.  Over these few years, photography and Photoshop have allowed me a new way to create.  I have learned a lot  but I want to keep learning more about  photography and Photoshop.

My background has significant impact on my thoughts as expressed in my Art: I am from the South, I am a student of theology, psychology and sociology and enjoy Pop Culture.   These often intersect and I love to take advantage of this in my Art.

For me, Art and the process of creating is difficult and easy; it is both rewarding and humbling.

I believe that Art is a language of the Soul; it is a way of translating intuitions, feelings or thoughts into a form that the world can see or experience.  Although I love the way photography captures life in a 1/125th second, for me, digital collage has become a more interesting  method of creating.  I find great facination in the way collage brings together unique or unrelated objects and forms a new meaning. 

Thank you for looking at my Art.  It is my hope that it will say something to you.

an artist is a man who digests his own subjective impressions and knows how to find a general objective meaning in them, and how to express them in a convincing form
