Albuquerque, New Mexico

My art comes from the everyday, the ordinary, the background. I take ordinary things and find the extraordinary in them. I take ads from mass media and decompose them and use the pieces to make images that transcend their original intent. Part of an elbow and a piece of drapery become the ridgeline of a landform. I also photograph my walks every morning with my dogs. I never look through the lens, but try to use my minds eye and hand to accidentally capture the images that swirl around us, just for an instant, in our everyday lives. I like to try and find the beauty in the mundane. The elegance in the ordinary.
