"My images begin as original digital or film photographs. Film work is converted to digital images. The digital images are manipulated with software to alter their original appearance and content. Some of the manipulations are significant and intended to produce images that have more of a painterly effect than the original photographs. Some of the manipulations are slight and meant only to improve the quality and content of the original photograph. In some cases, I will combine text with the manipulated photographic images to create a work that reaches out to the viewer on multiple levels and suggests at least one interpretation of the image.
"I really enjoy finding the intersection between the rather strict representation of an image that a photograph represents and the interpolated vision of it that many people think of as 'art.' In my own limited formal education in the arts, I was exposed to the idea that 'art' is the act of creation and that which is created is 'residue' of the creative process. So far, this notion has served best to describe how I feel about what I do and what I produce through what I do."
