About Me

I have two places that I call home; where I grew up on the island of
Moloka’i (in Hawaii) and where I now live in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Most of my
imagery represents reflections and glimpses of these two worlds. I like
to call them my parallel universes.

I am an eclectic person. Much of my work reflects my personal philosophy
and eclectic approach to life. I enjoy looking at things from different
perspectives. Often in my photographic work, I like getting in as close
as possible to the subject matter; noticing all the details that the eye
can see. The same subject matter viewed from as many perspectives as
possible can render entirely different interpretations. Sometimes a
particular viewpoint of an ordinary object becomes an abstraction in
itself; to the point of not being recognizable. This kind of examination
process offers an extraordinary variety of life’s vignettes. It is this
sense of acuity that I fully seek and embrace and am always in search
of in many of my images. It’s about seeing beauty, transcendence and
mystery in everyday things.

I also have a high affinity for textural and organic images which may
explain my attraction to such techniques as Polaroid manipulations, hand
pulled prints and working in the encaustic medium. These are very
textural and tactile processes.

My art endeavors are all truly personal. Throughout my work, I indulge in and enjoy the spirit of play and exploration.
